Poop From The Front End Of The Bird

10,000 Birds

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. Oehlenschlager apologized that he couldn’t say the exact species of bat. Who cares, the fact that he could narrow it down to 2 species was quite amazing to me.
