See a rare glimpse of Snowy Owls at a nest in Barrow, Alaska. The owl parents are now nurturing four or more newborn chicks.

Snowy Owls breed only in the Arctic and are also known as 'Tundra Ghosts.' They are not nocturnal and can be seen hunting day or night. With 24 hours of daylight in Barrow, Alaska at this time of year, there's plenty of time to see lots of action.
