Snowy White Owl

Sparrow Avenue, Snowy Owl Pillow
Bubo scandiacus, commonly known as the Snowy White Owl is found in Arctic regions but can also be seen in open fields. It is the largest of all the owls by weight at 4 lbs. / 1.8 kg. which is twice that of the Great Grey Owl.
The characteristic white feathers distinguish the males from the females which have more of the bar markings. My drawing, clearly, is a female.
