Snowy Owl

A lady said I could carve this snowy owl and one for her. She was kidding but I carved her one too. It's a simple carving that can be used as an ornament or set on a shelf. In the summer the snowy owls are brownish with dark spots and strips. In the winter they are almost completely white. The older males may be all white. Their eyes are yellow. Their height is up to 27 inches and their wingspan between 45 to 60 inches. They prefer the arctic tundra. When food is scarce they may migrate south. Their preferred  meal is lemmings.They supplement their diet with rabbits, rodents, birds, and fish. They hunt both during the day and night.
