Magic of the Snowy Owl
Video: Young Birds of Prey

Snowy owls are carnivores. They consume small mammals, other birds, and in some cases, fish. As adults, they eat an estimated 1,600 lemmings every year. However, it takes time to learn how to be a successful bird of prey. Someday these young snowies will be skilled predators, but not today. “Magic of the Snowy Owl” airs Wednesday, December 11 at 8/7c (check local listings).
