Poop From The Front End Of The Bird
JUNE 22, 2011
Many are familiar with dissecting owl pellets, but several birds will caste a pellet including hawks, eagles, gulls, herons and heck, I once witnessed a Scissor-tailed Flycatcher hack up a small one. I took home a few of the pellets and found that the owls were feasting on grey squirrels and cottontail rabbits. I stuffed it in my pocket and decided to take it to Richard Oehlenschlager at the Science Museum of Minnesota. Birds evacuate waste in many ways.
