The ‘horned’ owl is one of the most popular effigies of English literature, this is the least known and most mysterious of British owls. Because it is the most nocturnal and strongly arboreal, it is rarely seen by day and easily escapes attention, especially in winter, when it is generally silent. It has been known by various names such as cat owl, horn coot, hornie hoolet, horn-owl, horned owl, long ears, long-horned owl, long-horned ullat and tufted owl.
