For those that do not know what an owl pellet is...Let me first tell you what it is NOT...it is NOT poop. (I won't lie, that's what I thought it was at first).
Basically it's a 'hair ball'. When owls eat little rodents or little birds, they swallow them whole, but they are unable to digest the fur, feathers and bones. So they hack 'em back up in the form of a pellet.
Here are pics of the fun! It was determined that our owl had eaten a small mouse!

if you are adventurous you can even go and look for your own
