Snowy Owls: The Perfect Aerial Predator for the Arctic

Updated on December 14, 2011

The Silent, Tranquil, and Elusive Snowy Owl

Snowy Owls...they're elusive, secretive, and a silent predator. Only a handful of animals can exist in the frigid, bleak Arctic region. The Snowy Owl has adapted to this open, perilous environment perfectly.

Though the Snowy Owl is globally known, not much is known about their global population. Ongoing research will help tell more about these animals.

Be sure to add your sighting to the Guestbook at the bottom to document your Snowy Owl sighting! Intro photo of Snowy Owl by Fool on the Hill.

Snowy Owls - (Bubo Scandiacus, previously Nyctea Scandiaca)

Snowy Owls are a bird native to the unwelcoming, icy Arctic Tundra. In the months of warmer months of summer, these owls will stay within the Arctic Circle range. In the winter, the owls will migrate south to Canada, Russia, Greenland, Finland, Norway, France, and Scotland. They often visit the Great Plains of the Midwestern US. Some very rare cases documented migration in Florida, Texas, and internationally, South America and Bermuda. While venturing away from their home grounds, they typically will seek out areas similar to the Arctic tundra--wide open expanses, marshes, farms. Snowy Owls are seldom found in thick, tree-filled areas.

These magnificent birds are typically white with brown markings, and bright yellow and black eyes. The male snowy owls are smaller and have fewer markings then their larger female counterparts, which can be substantially darker and larger.

Once thought of by many as tuft-less owls, they have now been categorized in the same family as the Great Horned Owls. Though the snowy owls tufts (or ears, as some people may refer to them) are not always erect, they can be seen on occasion. You may be thinking this behavior these is related to hearing, but that doesn't seem to be true! However, they do seem to become erect when they get irritated.

Snowy Owls typically are around 23-26" and between 40-70 ounces. A banding system helps keep track of some Snowy Owls across the world, but there are only so many volunteers and workers to keep track of this! Since this bird is so secretive, this makes your first-hand accounts even more important.

It's not easy to see a snowy owl, especially if you don't live near their migratory areas. Be sure to describe any sightings you've had of Snowy Owls in our guestbook below, as well as voting here!

Snowy Owls in the Tundra

Snowy Owls in the Tundra

Based on their habitat, Snowy Owls are generally seen perched on the ground, resembling flat grassy tundra area. An interesting adaptation for snowy owls is related to there being no trees in the Arctic for roosting. Therefore a snowy owl, like all owls, must stay alert and is never truly in a deep sleep. Since they roost on the ground, this is a large factor in why they must remain so alert. Snowys are constantly moving their head, checking out their surroundings ensuring that there are no predators nearby that may be looking to prey on them.


They also have small, super-fine feathers. These are so fine, in fact, that some people may think that it is fur. This helps give them the ability to withstand very cold temperatures. The feathers extend down the foot and toes of these birds to protect their feet from the icy grassland they call home. They have long pointed wings and hunt similar to falcons, taking prey on the wing.

Like Vice Grips!

Snowys have super-strong toes to catch and crush their prey...around 200 pounds of pressure per toe! They're fast, too, for an owl-- around 70 mph!

What do Snowy Owls Eat?

The range of diet for the Snowy

Snowy owls typically feed on lemmings, mice and rats, though it has been documented that they will prey on black ducks, Canadian Geese, short eared owls, American Kestrels, Starlings, Great Blue Herons, and even other Snowy Owls!

Snowy Owl Satellite Tracking - Keeping track of Snowy Owls to learn more about this mysterious bird

There are currently several projects being conducted in the United States studying the migrating patterns and breeding habits of the snowy owls. Some researchers have started using satellite telemetry to track Snowy Owls. to track these beautiful creatures between their wintering grounds and their breeding grounds.

Not much is know about the global population of this species, so they are currently not labeled endangered. Satellite tracking will help us tell more about this elusive species. Snowy Owls are a federally protected species under the migratory bird act. See the links below for more information.

Snowy owls breed in the Arctic Circle range, often in Alaska. Barrow, Alaska has been a huge Snowy breeding ground. In a lifetime, females will breed 1-9 chicks. If prey is scarce, they will not breed that year and wait it out until the next year. Eggs will be incubated in rotations to ensure different hatch times, therefore increasing the chance of survival. Snowys will have different mates each year, and do not mate for life.

How can you Help the Snowy Owl?

Ways to help out the Snowy Owl...

Snowy Owls are so elusive that it's important to document sightings! This will help establish their range, where they are at certain points of the year, and ultimately, will help determine a global population. Spread the word about Snowy Owls and keep them educated! Please leave any Snowy Owl sightings in the Guestbook at the bottom of this page.

How Will Global Warming Affect Snowy Owls?

Loss of habitat due to rising sea levels will surely not be to Snowy Owls' advantage. Be sure to read the World Wildlife Federation's recommendations on stopping global warming.

      The Snowy Owl is such a magnificent and beautiful creature. This lens was discovered because I just published a lens on the topic of global warming and it appeared under the "Explore Related Pages" section. It is certainly worthy of the Purple Star.

      The Snowy Owl is my most favorite animal ever sense i was little, I've always loved them because they always blend in with stunning white snow. Plus their amazing yellow sharp eyes. The Snowy Owl is great animal to us, and I'm so happy we have them here on planet Earth.

      Saw a snowy Owl in Glenday Oregon about June in the middle of a snowstorm....driving to work early in the morning. Very distinctive bird...nothing like it native to the area (mountains) Glenday is about 5 miles from the I-5 freeway. I have heard of other sightings in Eugene Oregon but have no details (north of Glendale). That winter had weeks of sleet and freezing temps, lots of snow & ice although it had let up the month or two before the storm.....but it droped about 5 inches as I recall....

      I had never seen a Snowy Owl prior to this winter, but starting before Christmas I feel almost as if I am followed by them. I work a swing shift and am drive home often about 2am. I find myself keeping an eye out and seeing them sometimes multiple times a week. What a sight they are! I live in Washington State and have heard that they seem to disappear after about mid March in our region. I'll miss their company on the drive home and am looking forward to next winter, when hopefully, we can meet again!

      Believe it or not, I saw a Snowy Owl in Lancaster Pa--It flew at my window as I was speaking to my brother on the phone about my recently deceased mom, about 20 years ago. Gave me the thrill of my life.

      Several weeks later I was pondering this experience and thinking about my mom when a book fell inexplicably off the bookshelf.

      It was a bird book and was opened to the page about the Snowy Owl.
