Adopt a Snowy Owl

The snowy owl is unique in its coloring and appearance. It is a large, heavy owl with a 4 ½ foot wingspan. Although it is not the tallest owl in North America, the snowy owl is the heaviest. It can be almost twice as heavy as the larger great gray owl. Look for snowy owls year round in northern Alaska and during the winter in southern Alaska, New England and states bordering Canada. They like to hunt in open fields, prairies and farms. They can be seen perched on surrounding trees, waiting for prey to make a move. Snowy owls hunt by sight and sound, so even animals crawling through deep snow are fair game for this skilled aerial hunter. Unlike most owl species, snowy owls are just as likely to hunt in the day and night eating small rodents, rabbits, and fish. Habitat loss is one of the biggest threats to the snowy owls survival.
