Snowy Owl

Bubo scandiacus

Snowy owls are closely related to horned owls, such as eagle owls and fishing owls. Male snowy owls are pure white, whereas the females are spotted.



Size: 55 - 70cm
Weight: 1 - 2.5kg



The snowy owl lives in barren Arctic regions but they are also found in tundra, fields and marshes.



Their usual prey will be rodents and small birds but they are capable of catching prey up to the size of geese or hares.



Between 3 to 11 eggs are laid in a hole in the ground, which has been lined with feathers. These are incubated for around 5 weeks and the young first leave the nest at only 2 weeks old!



The snowy owl has recently been classed as ‘Vulnerable’ due to a rapid population decline. They are often victims of collisions with cars and aeroplanes, and climate change may be affecting the availability of their prey species.
