Males usually have a few small black spots on their wings and sometimes also on lower parts of their belly. Purely white male is quite rare, I believe. At least there are not many photos of these.
Btw, if you saw at least any promos from Harry Potter films with snowy owl, Hedwig - in books Hedwig is female, but in films the character was played by male owls Wink

Very interesting! I haven't seen Harry Potter movie though scratch but I know what it is Laughing

I'm not snowy owl expert but I think they are really beauties I love you It's even nice that it's more popular thanks to Harry Potter, so we can buy many different figures of this wonderful, magnificent bird cheers I get my info about them mostly from arkive.org and wikipedia so only basic information so far. Thank You for Your interesting additional info! Here is nice photo of all white male, and in this link there is few more of them, I think maybe they become more white with age, yes? scratch [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Here also several wonderful photos including entirely white males [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Still, even if they have most of the time very few of grey dots, models from Schleich or Safari would need repaint to look like male Snowy Owl :)

You are right, see some usefull information about snowy olws in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

"Snowy owls are predominantly white with dusky brown spots and bars. Females
tend to have more markings than males, which may become nearly completely white as they age. Young snowy owls are generally darker and more heavily marked
than adults. Snowy owls have yellow eyes and their legs and feet are covered in white feathers that protect them from the cold weather."

Thank You for the link and info Roger! Very Happy

I'm also open minded, so it wouldn't be any problem to have 2 females in owl's couple :) But I would prefer if they may bring some young owls, because I want more and more Snowy Owls in my collection Twisted Evil Laughing cheers

Welcome)
Yes, I do. I like birds of prey, though owls aren't my favourite (hawks and falcons are my love of a lifetime:)))

Thanks:)
Oh, I've forgotten the wooden one. I'll try to get her pics and add at the weekends)

Beautiful group of owls Daria, great to see that! Very Happy And great to hear about Your love to birds of prey I love you For me it's impossible to say which are my favorite, maybe owls, but when I start to think I love eagles as well and then falcons and then ospreys drunken But then not only birds of prey.... well no, I can't choose my favorite Laughing How do You choose Your favorites? Very Happy

I see on Your photo that Schleich Snowy owl is actually bigger than Safari ltd one, isn't it? Shocked
