Snowy owl (Bubo scandiacus) is an owl occurring in the tundra around the Arctic coasts. It is found in Greenland, Alaska, Canada, Iceland, Scotland, in the Scandinavian mountain chain, Finland, and Russia. Most breed in Siberia, Alaska and Canada and only a handful in Europe.

The Snowy Owl nests above the tree line, on heaths and similar vast, open areas with slightly undulating terrain. The bird places its nest on the ground that consists of a uppskrapad pit on top of a pile of stones, but it can also nest in abandoned eagle nests.

Snowy owls live almost exclusively on rodents like lemmings and voles, but sometimes also takes birds, especially grouse.
