Snowy Owls

Snowy owls are also known as polar owls or Arctic owls are large white owls of the owl family. Snowy owls breed on the tundra of the north where they are native to the arctic and polar regions.

Snowy owls are the only owls that are not night owls. They hunt during the daytime. During the summer months in the arctic polar regions daylight can last up to 24 hours. The snowy owl tends to move south during the winter for more daylight to hunt. Snowy owls are more active at dawn or dusk than in the middle of the day.

Male snowy owls are usually all white but young males may have dark spots. Females have dark spots all on their bodies and wings.

Habitat

During the winter the owls are commonly found in prairies open fields marshes beaches and dunes. In the summer owls tend to live on the tundra just north of the treeline. The snowy owl prefers open tundras in hilly areas or wetlands near the coast.

Snowy owls fly close to the ground when they are in flight. They can fly up to 50 mph. As they fly they are quiet often surprising their prey with next to no sound on approach.

Snowy owls typically weigh between 3.5 lbs and 6.5 lbs. During pregnancy females naturally gain weight. The female snowy owl can lay between 3 and 11 eggs per year. While the male feeds her the female sits on the eggs until they hatch. Eggs usually hatch after one month of incubation.

Around a month after hatching the babies begin to turn brown. After being raised by their parents for ten to twelve weeks the young learn to fly and hunt for themselves.
