Snowy Owl

Snowy Owl

Say hello to Norse, our snowy owl!

Snowy owls live in the cold, treeless area of the tundra. They have evolved dense downy feathers for insulation and white camouflages plumage to suit their snowy landscape and icy climate. They usually hunt lemmings and ptarmigan but can also catch geese and snow hares. 

Snowy owls were made famous by J.K. Rowlings as Harry Potter's pet owl, "Hedwig".
