Snowy Owls

Bubo scandiacus

About the Snowy Owls

Snowy owls are covered in white plumage; feathers even cover their toes and part of their beak to keep them insulated. Females are mottled with black feathers to camouflage themselves against snowy tundra landscapes.

Habitat and Distribution

Snowy owls are found in coastal areas, grasslands and tundra all around the Arctic.

Family Information

These owls live alone or in pairs. Snowy owls lay between four and nine eggs in May or early June, the chicks take about a month to hatch and a further two months before they can fly.
