This You Won’t Believe…Vicious Attacks On Eagles By Owls & All Caught On Video

While I do not claim to be a wildlife expert, if someone had told me about this, I never would have believed it. I have never heard of owls attacking eagles, but in the video below, which has long gone viral, you can see for yourself.

Owls are masters of the art of silent assassination and nothing, not even eagles are immune to their vicious, deadly and silent attacks.

In mythology and folklore, owls are regarded as symbols of wisdom and intelligence. Unfortunately, this popular notion is simply not true. Owls are on the low end of bird intelligence, and they are nowhere near as smart as parrots and crows. But, what they lack in brains, they make up for in brawn and an absolutely frightening demeanor.Like a true predator, owls’ eyes are enormous and forward-facing, unlike other smaller birds, which have eyes on the sides of the heads. This allows owls to hone in on their prey with ease.
And when it comes to Great Horned owls…they are positively beastly. In a battle between an owl and an eagle, bet on the owl. Bald eagles can weigh up to 14 pounds. Their wings can spread to seven feet, which is two feet wider than the smaller owl can manage. But great horned owls are fierce.
They begin nesting in midwinter, customarily taking over the nests of other large birds before those birds arrive in the spring. Occasionally, they commandeer eagle nests – nests that the eagles were planning to use. Scuffles follow. The owl usually prevails.
