Snowy Owl

The Snowy owl is an uncommon winter resident to Newfoundland but sometimes occurs in considerable numbers when lemmings ,their favourite food source becomes scarce in the northern tundra. This arctic owl begins to arrive in the province in September and some are reported to stay as late as April or May. It is very wary and perches upon a high point of land,rock,tree or building in order to survey its surroundings in all directions, thus detecting the approach of prey or enemies.
