Stormy the Snowy Owl

    Newer Older

    Heres Stormy the Snowy Owl, The first in my North American / Canadian Series of Birds.

    I thought it was about time I built another Bird of Prey and Owls are my favourites.

    The Snowy Owl (Bubo scandiacus) is a large owl of the typical owl family Strigidae. The The bird is also known in North America as the Arctic Owl, Great White Owl, Icelandic Snow Owl, or Harfang. The Snowy Owl is the official bird of Quebec.

    It is one of the largest species of owl and in North America is on average the heaviest owl species. The adult male is virtually pure white, but females and young birds have some dark scalloping; the young are heavily barred, and dark spotting may even predominate. Its thick plumage, heavily feathered taloned feet, and colouration render the Snowy Owl well-adapted for life north of the Arctic Circle.

    I have created a new CUUSOO project Hedwig, Harry Potter's Owl as I'm sure Harry Potter fans would love to own one of these ;-)

    I will also be adding him to my LEGO Bird Project on CUUSOO. Please support the project if you haven't already, I'm nearly on 3,000 supporters but there's still a very long way to go!

    Stormy was great fun to sculpt and I am very happy with the way he turned out!

      Love your work! Will you do an Eastern Screech Owl? They have adorable pointed "ears".

      Superb, with MOCs like this you'll reach 10000 in no time.

      Hi Joan! Thanks for the compliment, I will be building more Owls, but not just yet, I have such a long list to get through for the moment but I will certainly be revisiting Owls :-)
