  • Snowy Owls are nocturnal, but they hunt during the day
  • The Snowy Owl is the provincial bird of Quebec.
  • Snowy Owls are nocturnal, but they hunt during the day
  •  The birds will move to other areas in search of lemmings or they will instead hunt other mammals
  • Snowy Owls range in size from 52 to 70 cm (20 to 28 in.)
  •  their wingspan ranges from 125 to 145 cm (49 to 57 in.).
  •  Snowy Owls are also one of the most agile owls, able to catch small birds on the fly.
  • their diet can range widely to include rodents, rabbits, hares, squirrels, weasels, wading birds, seabirds, ducks, grebes, and geese.
  • Snowy Owl female builds the nest, scraping out a shallow hollow on the bare ground and shaping it by pressing her body into the depression. The process takes a few days, and the owls may reuse the nest site for many years.
  •  On their breeding grounds, male Snowy Owls execute a fascinating mating display. First the male rises into the air with exaggerated wingbeats in an undulating flight, holding a lemming in his bill or talons. Then he descends to the ground with wings flapping or held in a “V.” He drops the prey on the ground, stands erect, then lowers his head and fans his tail as the female approaches.
