Snowy owl harried by peregrine falcon on Vlieland island


This video from the Netherlands, made on New Years Day 2014, is about the Vlieland island snowy owl being harried by a peregrine falcon.

Vlieland warden Carl Zuhorn made this video. He writes that the snowy owl is a young bird, probably born in 2013.

Carl Zuhorn thinks that the snowy owl‘s food on Vlieland will consist of wood mice, harvest mice, brown rats, rabbits, and maybe occasionally a bird.

A photo of the snowy owl is here.
