Safari LTD | Wings of the World Birds ~ SNOWY OWL
Snowy owls face no immediate human threat, and are classified as an animal of least concern on the conservation status spectrum. Similarly, snowy owls have no known natural predator, although they do directly compete with an array of birds including hawks, eagles, peregrine falcons, gulls, and multiple other species of owl. Because of their size, snowy owls are often considered the dominant raptor in the regions they inhabit.
