Did you know:
…The Snowy Owl was long concerned the only member of the genus Nyctea, but research snows they’re closely relatied to the Horned Owls in the genus Bubo. Still, the classification Nyctea is preferred.
… The Snowy Owl is the official bird of the Canadian province Quebec.
…Both sexes aren’t similar; the male is mostly white, while the female – and young birds – have dark scalloping in their plumage.
