Introduction - Snowy Owl

The Snowy Owl, who is the official bird of Quebec, Canada, is also known as the Snow Owl, Great White Owl and the Arctic Owl. It is actually a resident of the high Arctic tundra in places like Canada and Alaska but migrates south to the Boreal Forest to hunt during the winter months. It prefers open fields and marshes to wooded areas. What makes this owl an interesting animal is that the feathers have no pigment, which aids them in their habitat. On this page of Snowy Owl facts, you will find information on what they eat, how they survive, where they nest, and much more. This information is written for both kids and adults.
