Nyctea scandiaca the great white owl.
The great white owl with it's dispassionately wise yellow eyes taking in the drama of the circumpolar tundra... It is one of the largest and heaviest of the North American owls and certainly the most dramatic to see. Although there are color variations, they can be for all appearances, almost completely white with only a little gray barring. Due to food shortages, Snowy owls make periodic invasions of southern Canada and the northern tier of States as well as parts of Europe (?). Here in Alaska its main food consists in small mammals like mice and lemmings, but, like most of us, they will eat almost anything if the opportunity or necessity arises. SIZE: 1.25"X1.25"
