The Canadian lynx (Lynx canadensis) is one of 4 Lynx genus medium-sized wildcats. This breed is a North American felid that ranges in forest & tundra regions across Canada & Alaska. I've always like the ear tips and 'beard' on a lynx.
Screech owls are reddish brown or gray, with feathered tufts that resemble ears. They're found throughout the United States, from southern Canada down to northern Mexico. Screech owls mate for life, although males may occasionally be untrue to their spouses. They can be on the lookout for a suitable nesting site at any time of the year, but will hatch one clutch of eggs annually, between mid-March and mid-May. Nesting boxes can be placed year-round.
