Snowy Owl Bedford 1

“Snowy”

Snowy Owl 
Bubo scandiacus

Snowy was bred in captivity in NY, in July 2006. Although she spent some time in training to be an education ambassador, she was retired to the exhibits where she is much more comfortable and is able to view and call out to visitors on her own time and terms.
Snowy is a bird full of personality and independence. As an imprint, she identifies people as members of her species, which means she can be both affectionate and aggressive, depending on the circumstance. Whether our volunteers are handing her a tasty morsel, or cleaning up around her aviary, she always has an opinion to express!
To maintain the high standards of Snowy’s habitat, as a tundra-dwelling bird, we make sure to keep her cool in the summer by providing lots of shade and opportunities to bathe, as well as the occasional toy—a mouse frozen in a block of ice!
