Here is just an FYI... When Snowy Owls are perched on a high perch like a telephone pole during the day, The bird is hunting, because it is hungry. When Snowies are content they perch on the ground with their eyes almost closed. If anyone goes searching for it and finds it on a high perch such as a telephone pole, stay far enough away from it as to not make it fly as it is most likely quite hungry.
