If that is a Snowy Owl it may be normal. These owls perch on the ground and are not as afraid of humans, also, they will hang around if the food supply is good.

Subject: [VTBIRD] owl in trouble
I just received a call from Mike and Carol Morris of Lisbon, N.H. There is
an owl on their property that will not leave. Mike approached as close as 20
feet, the owl was on the ground. It is able to fly, flies but a short
distance and lands on the ground again. The Morris' phone # is 603 838 6491.
Any helpful suggestions appreciated. Kathy Dube
