its an Eagle Owl. When fully grown they can be six feet tall, and have a ten foot wing span. Obviously thats dependant on a lot of factors...but the wild one in pately bridge earlier this year, was so loud its hoots kept people awake, its weight threatened to dislodge roof tiles, and people kept their dogs and cats indoor for fear the owl could get hungry and prey upon animals of that size

Yes, I know it's an Eagle-owl. As I said "scary bird". Very strong, too. You can see it in the video.

I love at the end, the way it folds up its wings on landing, and you see the glorious wing feathers as the breeze ripples through them...they look so...flimsy....really, what a magnificent speciemin :)
