Snowy Owl
(Bubo scandiacus)- "Freya"

 

The same owl as the Harry Potter Owl, but that is not the full story to this incredible Owl! They nest in the Arctic tundra of the northern most stretches of Alaska, Canada & Eurasia. They winter south through Canada & Northern Eurasia, with interruptions occurring further south in some years, generally due to being pushed off course by strong winds. Snowy owls are attracted to open areas like coastal dunes & prairies that appear somewhat similar to tundra.


Young owls, especially males, get whiter as they get older. Females are darker than males, with dusky spotting, and never become totally white. 


A static hunter waiting until they spot food nearby before heading off in pursuit. Their preferred meal is lemmings, lots of lemmings. An adult may eat over 1600 lemmings in a year! During times of low density of lemming & during the ptarmigan nesting period, they often switch to favouring juvenile ptarmigan. Come winter they become considerably more opportunist, often spotted following traplines to find food. Feeding on meadow voles, deer mice, but will take advantage of some of the larger mammal prey include hare, muskrats, rabbits, marmots, squirrels, rabbits, raccoons, prairie dogs & even birds including ducks, geese, shorebirds, pheasants, grouse, coots, grebes, gulls & even other raptors, including other owl species.

Our Freya is an incredible flying bird with her huge 5ft wingspan she can cover great distances pulling incredible circuits around our flying field.
