We all have our own ways of expressions, but this Snowy Owl certainly has the best!

Snowy Owls are one of the largest and most powerful and yet strikingly beautiful of all North American owls. They are relatively long-lived, thought to usually live more than 10 years of age in the wild. There are records of captive birds reaching 28 years old.
Sadly, due to habitat loss and other threats there are now less than 30,000 individuals estimated to be in the wild. They are now categorized as vulnerable by the IUCN red listed of threatened species.
While these birds breed in North America in Alaska and across northern Canada, they are also spotted in states like New Jersey during the winter when move here in search of prey.
