Snowy Owl

Bubo scandiacus

Description:

Beautiful white male with black markings on the back. In the last photo you can see how fluffy they are all over the body! Super cool bird and one I had really been wanting to see, glad it finally happened :)

Habitat:

Found this bird on my own while on the way to see another one nearby that was being seen at the time haha. Great feeling finding my own! On the sand dunes right near the ocean at a state park.

Thanks Sunny! And he was Joshua. Just climbed a sand dune and looked around and there a giant, white blob sitting on the ground. Definitely an awesome feeling!
