Snowy owl Images

Of all the animals of the arctic, snowy owl images usually don’t receive as much attention as their neighbors. Photographs of these large pale birds are truly a sight, especially when they’re flying over their icy habitat. We don’t see snowy owls mentioned as much as the mammals in the region, which adds to their mysterious aura. These birds get white and more ghost like as they age. Males will develop whiter plumage than females. Females will retain some dark brown spotting but will never attain an impeccably white coat. Males can become fully white when they reach a certain age, but otherwise retain some spotting as well. Most snowy owl images that are photographed highlight their beautiful plumage.

Snowy Owl Habits

Snowy owls aren’t known to sit in one place for very long. In fact, they’re thought to be more nomadic in nature, travelling for miles while hunting. This makes them especially difficult to track and to capture snowy owl images. They can sometimes remain in their breeding grounds all year, but often visit Canada, the United States, Asia, and Europe. They can change their migration based on the availability of their favorite prey, lemmings. If there are enough, snow owls can migrate for the summer to everything from the tundra to beaches. 

They’re excellent hunters, relying on patience and the element of surprise to capture prey. They can wait on perches for hours waiting for prey before ambushing them. In addition to their long hooked talons, snowy owls also have sharp hearing and excellent vision. This helps them locate and effectively snatch up their prey. Contrary to what you may have assumed, these animals are not nocturnal like other owls. These birds hunt throughout the day, day or night. However, they are still exceptionally difficult to find in the wild and tend to stay away from human populated areas. Luckily, it isn’t undo-able to locate them and photograph them for snowy owl images.

Snowy Owl Breeding

When it comes to breeding, these birds stay up north in the Arctic tundra. The owls don’t make nests like other birds, but instead lay 3-11 eggs in mounds on the ground. Parents will lay bigger clutches if there is more abundant food available. Sometimes a breeding pair may not lay any eggs at all if times are bad. Snowy owl parents will defend their young aggressively and be very territorial. Some have even been known to put up a fight against wolves.

With the whole world slowing down and taking a pause recently, we’re all taking time to look at the big picture. Suddenly, our routines have been shaken up, some disfigured beyond recognition. For most of us, our regular 9-5 grind may be overshadowed by resting and indulging in our hobbies. However, there’s a good chance that this shift in routine may be uncomfortable and even unsettling.

Creatures of Habit

We can be creatures of habit. Sticking to one thing because we know it, how to do it, and how to be successful at it. It can become part of your routine, whether as a way of making money or simply as a hobby. Once we do get in that rut, it may never cross our minds to get out, or even why we’re there in the first place. We might have tried something new and found that we were good at it, so we grabbed onto it. Alternatively, we could have worked really hard to master something and now we don’t want to leave it and have to start all over again. Either way it’s very tempting to hold tightly to whatever we feel comfortable doing, even if we may not really want to do it.

It’s useful to question yourself. That is how people grow and evolve; by constantly questioning themselves and their ideologies. Asking why we have a certain routine in our lives can help you see how you make decisions. Are you working your current job because you wanted that career and worked really hard to get it? Are you still playing piano because your parents made you practice everyday when you were younger? Is there something you wish you could do differently if you weren’t committed to your habits? The good news is that we’re not truly married to our habits and routines. We have the ability to recognize what we actually want and then work towards it. It does have to start with taking the first steps to see what you have and what you want. After that, it’s up to your motivation and efforts to get you there.
