Product Abstract

The Snowy Owl, a conspicuous and majestic bird of the circumpolar arctic, is an efficient hunter of small mammals in tundra environs. In years of high lemming numbers they will focus on this abundant food source but will readily switch to a wide variety of other prey when lemmings are scarce (Parmelee 1992). Their breeding range in Alaska is generally restricted to the Arctic Coastal Plain, typically nesting in more upland tundra habitats, although they often, though not exclusively, forage in wetter tundra (Parmelee 1992). Snowy Owls are unpredictable migrants and will sometimes “invade” portions of southern Canada and the northern contiguous US, in winters when lemmings are scarce in the Arctic. The current global population is estimated at 300,000 (Rich et al. 2004).
