The Snowy Owl is Canada’s largest species of owls. It is also the official bird of Quebec. The females and younger birds usually have some dark spotting whereas the males are pure white. They are well adapted for life North of the Arctic Circle. The snowy owl usually hunts small mammals, but is also known for hunting larger prey such as: hares, squirrels, rats, among others. When defending their nests, they usually defend from arctic foxes, dogs, and grey wolves. They have competition when it comes to prey as well, they compete against hawks, golden eagles, wolves, arctic foxes, and other species of owls.
Such a beautiful specie of owl, but with beauty comes competition I guess.
Good Luck Snowy Owls!
