Do Owls Hibernate?

Many birds of prey have been known to hibernate during the winter season as it is simply too cold for them during this time.  Owls are no exception to the hibernation process that takes place during winter season.  In fact most species of owls hibernate in the same way other birds do.  One exception to this rule however is the Snowy Owl.  The Snowy Owl is the only owl that is known not to hibernate.  Rather than hibernating during the winter it migrates to a warmer location and then migrates back after the winter season is over.
