I had a first while bow hunting last Sunday. As the sun was about to come up I had a Great Horned Owl fly right by me in the tree. He never made a sound coming, going, or taking flaps. This really freaked me out b/c it didn't make sense or register with my small brain. I was astonished as he landed about 30 yards away, again making zero noise. I've been dive bombed many times, had all types of Barreds land on my branch or beside me, we even have owls who fornicate on our back deck each year - but I have never seen an owl so large, so close, move/fly without a sound. Made my day.
