This little owl was tricky to identify. We had to call in the experts from Environment Yukon for help.

Turns out, it's a young Great Horned Owl who hasn't quite grown his horns yet! They are active day or night, which is why this guy was spotted in full daylight.

This momma Lynx and her two young ones have been seen around the Whitehorse area. Lynx are solitary animals and it's quite rare to see them in groups.

If you spot wildlife in the Yukon, please remember keep your encounters brief and maintain as much distance as possible to prevent them from becoming habituated to humans.
