In the harsh cold of the Arctic Circle, snowy owls circle the treeless tundra in search of prey. Readers will take a close look at these remarkable birds of prey, from how they communicate with each other and raise their young to why they migrate and how they interact with humans. They will also learn how snowy owls are related to other owls and how their physical features help them survive in a harsh habitat.
