Cornell Lab of Ornithology: “The largest owl by weight in North America, these birds spend their summers far north of the Arctic Circle hunting lemmings, ptarmigan, and other prey in 24-hour daylight.” These incredible birds attract a lot of “paparazzi,” which causes a lot of ongoing discussions on ethical birding and photography. It’s wonderful to view them, but any wild animal should be observed from a distance. (Photo by Steve Muise, Farmington, Maine)
