Snowy Owl

The Snowy Owl (Bubo scandiacus) is a large owl of the typical owl family Strigidae. The bird is also known in North America as the Arctic Owl or the Great White Owl.

Identification Tips:
• Length: 20 inches Wingspan: 55 inches
• Large, diurnal, predatory bird
• Large, rounded head
• Yellow eyes
• Entirely white plumage with scattered dark spots
• Immatures are boldly barred with black
• Sexes similar

This species of owl nests on the ground, building a scrape on top of a mound or boulder. A site with good visibility, ready access to hunting areas, and a lack of snow is chosen. Gravel bars and abandoned eagle nests may be used.

The Snowy Owl is typically found in the northern circumpolar region, where it makes its summer home north of latitude 60 degrees north. However, it is a particularly nomadic bird.

Snowy Owls winter south through Canada and northernmost Eurasia, with irruptions occurring further south in some years. They have been reported as far south as Texas, Georgia, the American Gulf states, southern Russia, northern China and even the Caribbean.
