Snowy Owls have been showing up in record numbers this winter across southern parts of Canada and northern United States. It is believed that these sightings may be related to the large numbers of owls hatched last year as well as changes in the lemming population in the Arctic, the owls' main food source. This owl was photographed on January 21 in southwestern BC, Canada, where a large number of owls have been wintering.
