Snowy owl.


A summer snowy, near Brigus Junction, Newfoundland, June 6, 2018.
Haven't been able to find many snowies this year so I'm posting one from last June.
Seen in a rehab area, healthy but unable to fly.

Bubo scandiacus
Thick feathers for insulation from Arctic cold make Snowy Owls North America’s heaviest owl, typically weighing about 4 pounds—one pound heavier than a Great Horned Owl and twice the weight of a Great Gray Owl (North America’s tallest owl).
