Snow owl 1

Late last year (2010) I received by mail from a good Dutch e-mail friend two pieces basswood, try this he says, much better for wood carving, and he's right, much better!

See my results so far, much remains to be done,sandpaper,lttle color eyes and claws.

The snowy owl is especially a tundra owl.
In severe winters he sometimes observed in the Netherlands or Belgium.

His range is far North Asia,Europe and North America.
With a length of 60 cm and a wingspan of more than one meter he is able to kil large prey.
The legs are swathed in a long feather trousers with continues until the claws, he as yellow eyes and his feathers are white with brown spots, the male and the older one's are more white
