Description About the Art
The ghost-like appearance of the Snowy Owl speaks of its Arctic origins. With sharp eyesight and remarkable hearing, the Snowy Owl is a patient hunter, perching and waiting to locate its prey before soaring off in pursuit. They frequently snatch their invisible quarry from under snow cover and thick vegetation. Their favorite meal is lemmings -- small mouse-like rodents, and each adult can eat more than 1,600 lemmings every year. Because the Snowy Owl is migratory, they're difficult to accurately study, but recent data indicates their population is in sharp decline. Even though the causes are not well-understood, many complex factors commonly associated with global warming seem to be in play. Snowy Owls usually mate for life and will fiercely defend their nests from all comers, even wolves.
