Snowy Owl


Look what we got in today! It's a Snowy Owl. It was brought in with a broken wing. We are hoping to fix it and release it. We are all excited about this one because we don't see too many of them. This one is probably a female because the males are mostly white.

Snowy Owl facts:
20 to 28 inches in size
Wingspan about 4.8 feet
They like to eat rodents
In the wild they live about 9.5 years but in captivity can live up to 35 years

  3. She is so beautiful! Does she get a name? or are you all refraining from a name because of a most likely release? She is a gorgeous owl and her eyes are just stunning.
