Snowy owls aren’t known to sit in one place for very long. Luckily, I captured this stunning flying owl. In fact, they’re thought to be more nomadic in nature, traveling for miles while hunting. This makes it especially difficult to track and to capture amazing snowy owl images. They can sometimes remain in their breeding grounds all year, but often visit Canada, the United States, Asia, and Europe. They can change their migration based on the availability of their favorite prey, lemmings. If there are enough, snow owls can migrate for the summer to everything from the tundra to beaches.
They’re excellent hunters, relying on patience and the element of surprise to capture prey. They can wait on perches for hours waiting for prey before ambushing them. In addition to their long hooked talons, snowy owls also have sharp hearing and excellent vision. This helps them locate and effectively snatch up their prey. Contrary to what you may have assumed, these animals are not nocturnal like other owls. These birds hunt throughout the day, day or night. However, they are still exceptionally difficult to find in the wild and tend to stay away from human-populated areas. Luckily, it isn’t undo-able to locate them and photograph them for snowy owl images.
