In addition to their great size (9 feet tall with a wingspan of 20 feet), these creatures were intelligent and capable of speech.
Giant owls were good-natured and sought to live in harmony with the world. They opposed evil and needless destruction.
Giants owls attacked by gliding above their foes and striking at them with their talons. When possible, giant owls would band together to attack in concert.
Giant owls could be trained to serve as mounts.
A number of magic items in Faerûn were able to summon giant owls:
