As the person filming backs the car up (and the lynxes let the car get surprisingly close, which reminds us that love gives us blinders), you hear the noise get louder. It's not a noise you hear very often unless you happen to live in close proximity to a randy lynx.
Mating season for lynxes is between February and March. This video was filmed in early April, a bit late for the mating season, but not unheard of. Though the otherworldly howl sounds aggressive, male lynx, when fighting, make a noise that sounds unnervingly like a human woman's screaming, less sing-song and love-sick than this noise.
