Dear Tweeters,

A third-grader has me stumped. What, if anything, preys upon Snowy Owls, or their eggs or young?

I told her that all I can give is an educated guess: maybe humans, polar bears, or arctic foxes?

I doubt even a Gyrfalcon would want to mess with Snowy Owls at the nest!

Any information would be welcomed! I could even put in a request to get your name into her “Works Cited” page!

Yours truly,

Gary Bletsch
