10) Screech Owl

This is a voice in the night. It serves as raw material for nightmares to the uninformed. The Screech Owl looks like it has ears, but those are not ears at all. Those are tufts of feathers that give the owl the appearance of a predator. They eat small animals such as lizards, insects, and an occasional small snake. They also take small songbirds and rodents. The best time to hear a Screech Owl is just before dark. Usually, you can hear them easily from the playing field at the EcoScape.
