Snowy Owls

Located at 76 ° latitude, -96° longitude.

Snowy Owls are found only in the Arctic, and are most commonly seen sitting very still on the tundra. Snowy Owls are about the size of a Great Horned Owl, but are different in that they will hunt during the day and they have two different colors of plumage depending upon the season. In summer, Snowy Owls are brownish with dark spots and stripes. In winter, they are completely white.

Snowy Owls do not fly south in the winter, but will stay wherever there is food to eat.
