Snowy Owl

Bubo scandiaca

Spending summers in the arctic regions allows them to hunt continuously in the 24-hour daylight instead of at night like most owls. Snowy owls will stick close to the ground, even when flying, and prefer treeless, open scapes. They use exceptional hearing and vision to find prey which they swallow whole.
