Observation details

Snowy Owl was determined to be first-year male or adult female in the field. Extensive white bib and white on back of the head ruled out first-year female. After consulting several references and reviewing photos, this bird has been identified as an adult female based on the following characteristics: 1) Extensive white bib surrounded by dark, dense ventral barring, 2) Dark markings on nape, also extending from crown around sides of head, 3) Nearly complete tail bars, 4) Lack of extensive mottling on upperwing coverts/tertials and primary tips, and 5) Large, dark chevron markings on the back (less conclusive but still seems to support adult female identification).
