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).

Official GM response from Customer Support:

 

Hey there!

 

Good question about the Snowy Owl! This year, with patch 5.3, it & the Qiraji Guardling spawns changed so that they match up with real-life calendar days for Winter & Summer.

 

Thus, Snowy Owl has not begun spawning on any server, & will not until Winter officially begins in the real world, Northern Hemisphere (hint: December 21st for 2013). Then you'll know when to go out and catch that feathery little guy!

Not going to lie, the people who are already searching for rares and bragging in general chat about how many they are killing are driving me insane. Why can't we all just catch one for our achievement and then either upgrade with a stone or return in a few weeks/month to hunt for a rare? Seriously, it's the first day of spawning!

It seems Blizz may have changed the seasons to match the RW. If this is the case, the owl may not spawn until Dec 21st, the actual start of winter. It would make sense, since the blossoning ancient changes for each season. I was excited to get my last Kalimdor pet this morning, too :(

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?

They are out there. It helps to kill all other battle pets in the area of a spawn point and then camp it. While they don't share spawn points per say, the area can only have so many battle pets spawned, so by killing th other other ones (hares and chimpmunks), the server has a chance to spawn an owl. Worked for me and others I told to try it on Sargeras at around 11am pacific today.....got an uncommon one and left. Figured I would let others get theirs then come back for a rare later.

Is this a primary only pet, or has someone confirmed it as a secondary pet also?

thru testing, tried using npc scan id 7554.This works, you have to disable any addon to do with pets. when i log on i check npc scan and snowy owl is not found.tried using flight path to see across crz and have yet to get a snowy owl to pop. evening using target macro as i was flying.At this point i would venture a guess that they are not spawning yet. I also have a ticket in with support. still waiting will edit when i get an answer.

Also had a toon doin pet daily there for 2 months and nothing

a friend of mine and I had an idea about catching this little guy, since "winter" is quite far off. So, I made a death knight on an Oceanic server, levelled him to 60, and have him parked out in Winterspring. I'm hoping that the seasons are reversed, since they are IRL, and maybe I can catch an owl later this week. I'll post again with my findings. :D

For the purpose of seasons, if you have the new Blossoming Ancient from the pet store, its summoned look changes dependant on the season (in game).

 

Note: You must actually summon it to get the current season to display. In the journal it always displays summer (all green foliage). 

 

So I'm checking it daily to see when summer rolls around. :)

After multiple battles, it seems very likely that this pet will not appear as an add to your fight. You must find an owl spawn to nab it.

 

Thanks to WarcraftPets for letting me know they were up; got mine (common) just after midnight up by Frostsaber Rock.

 

(Also saw Siam-Rotan and Rak'shiri... ah, a moment of nostalgia for the good ol' days when Winterspring was endgame content.)

 

If you see owls on the flight in, but then when you land, they are gone, you are a victim of cross-realm zoning. When you are flying, you're "on" one server, but when you land, you're in another, shared by all servers in your data center, not just your battlegroup. Same deal with minfernal and scourged whelpling. Best of luck to everyone!

Finally started spawning on whatever server Icecrown shares around noon that server time, 3rd one was a rare.  Glad to have that one done, CRZ is dumb!

Just to confirm that you can already get it :)

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 ;)
