This picture came up on the Weather Network website and it’s a pretty good one.
I don’t know if you ever had the chance to see one of those flying beast, they are truly impressive. I was lucky enough to see a few of them over time and it’s mesmerizing every single time. Maybe because it’s so uncommon to see such a giant predator flying around. Unfortunately you can probably count how many of these snowy owls are left. As you can see in the picture, the females are darker than males, with dusky spotting, and never become totally white. Some older male snowy owl can become totally white. These beasts usually eat small rodents but the larger ones can go for raccoons, rabbits and even they biological cousin the duck.
