Figure 1

Example of snowy owl’s pre-breeding movements, alternating between searching and moving behavioural states. Example of a tracked snowy owl searching for a potential breeding site in the Arctic in spring 2009, in relation with surface snow cover (a) and depth (b). Red-outlined dots indicate locations where searching behavioural state occurred.
