Do Birds Have Horns?

Great Horned Owl by Paul O. Roisen

Some birds carry the word "Horned" in their name. They don't really have horns like cattle, deer or rhinoceroses. What appear to be horns are merely tufts of feathers. They may not be actual horns, but they do give the birds just a little added look of fierceness. Don't you think?
