This wild pet spawns in Winterspring but only during winter months.

Although it was first spotted November 1, 2012 and continued to spawn until March 1, 2013, Blizzard has since changed the spawning of this pet to correspond with the Northern Hemisphere real-world seasons. This means the Snowy Owl will begin spawning December 21 (start of the winter solstice).

Darn it all. Looks like I've missed winter. Any change of it spawning before Dec??

Yesterday was the RL "first day of spring" and there were still Snowy Owls in Winterspring for at least part of the day (I only checked once). I'm not seeing any today, however. Guessing that winter may have ended in WoW.

March 14, still a lot around. Took me awhile to get anything better than a Common, though.

I'd like to confirm capture as late as March 11, so he really should be available until the calendar says winter is over, on March 22 or so.  I found him very near Trixxy, where there were several, all common or poor.

I agree with Aspasito about the pettracker, it was a huge help, also several people commented on finding one when they came to do Grand Master Trixxy's Daily pet tamer. 


I had gathered one of each breed s/b and p/b prior to today, when the season first started, I like many others were searching for the elusive owl and after many times of coming to the zone, I gathered those 2.


Today, I came to Trixxy and as I was flying I realized the Snowy Owl was the only pet in this zone, I did not have a rare of. I thought to myself, I might as well stone the Owl, because the likelihood of me spotting a rare, would be rare, indeed.


Ha. I get to Trixxy, moments after this thought, and there is a Snowy Owl waiting for me and, yes, it was a Rare. (Shadowsong, 10:00am Server, 65.9,64.1)


Rare day indeed. Hats off to you, Trixxy, thanks for the XP on my pets, and watching this Snowy Owl for me, until I could get there ;)

Spawn locations given by PetTracker is perfect for this kid. Spawn rate is not dependent on others, and its several hours (although I think it's faster than last year). When you're done checking all your server owls for rares, you can cross-realm with a low population server and check there as well. I'm checking more than 200 owls/day, still yet to see a rare one. Might end up using a stone for this baby, its one of my last 3 uncommon wild pets and I'm sick of the sight of snowy Winterspring...

Came into Winterspring just up from Mt Hyjal - found one instantly (poor quality) and upon further exploration into the zone, they were literally everywhere (2-3 per area of trees along the roads) 


I nabbed a rare and a Robo-Chick rare!


Happy Battles!

Found one arathor EU right at the entrance from Mt Hyjal, small area of trees.  Talk about Sophie's Choice, this one was the first one I have seen and I have been looking.  It was poor, but it was paired with a rare Robo chick!  Decisions decisions.  So I caged the owl and killed the robo chick :(

Found mine in Winterspring ( Fizzcrank ), in a bowl at 62.3, 25.4 .... look for a big tree ! =) Mine was poor, and another poor spawned right after I tamed mine. Be helpful and let others know they spawn. ;-)

Caught mine on US-Lightbringer at about 1am server. It was poor quality. Found another green one a few minutes later. Left the battle and let everyone in General know the location. It does not matter if it is green or poor, you will still need to stone, so show some love to your fellow hunters.

I'm asking if I am right in thinking my SB owl is better than my PB owl. They are both poor and the same level. But the SB is listed as the better pet in my collection.


My other thought is one is male and one is female. Should I keep and stone both of them both to save for the next expansion to breed them? I wonder if we'll be able to sell our baby pets?

Still trying to understand the different breeds and was wondering which of the 3 possible breeds would be the best one for the snowy owl? I do have a stone to upgrade but hate to waste it on the wrong one. I have found 2 green owls a B/B and a S/B.

** Edit: 1.55pm server time (8.59pm Australian EST), on Suramar, I found and caged my rare Snowy Owl. Ice Thistle Hills 66.63. Good luck and happy hunting!


Between 11.57pm and 12.58am on Suramar, I found HEAPS of owls absolutely everywhere. After an hour, they seemed to all disappear and alot of other pets spawned.


I found an Uncommon between Frostwhisper Gorge and Mazthoril.

On my main's server Sbadowmoon, there were so many ppl there looking, so I went to a dk alt on Coilfang and flew over to Everlook. On the way I saw 3 owls in my minimap,  but they werent there once I landed. Found one about 20 mins later near winterfin villiage. btw, there was maybe 3 of us there looking for the owl at a lil after noon today.
