The snowy owl (Bubo scandiacus) is a large, white owl of the typical owl family. Males are almost all white, while females have more flecks of black plumage. Snowy owls nest in the Arctic tundra of the northernmost stretches of Alaska, Northern Canada, and Eurasia. They winter south through Canada. Snowy owls are attracted to open areas like the prairies. This is exciting to me, as I was able to travel not too far in order to seek out these majestic birds. I was fortunate enough to spot a beautiful male snowy owl perched on top of a power pole, on my first excursion out to find the snowy owl.
