week that had a crawdad shell in it. Wide Hollow Creek runs along the south end of the cemetery. This is the first pellet I have found with something other than a rodent in it. From the size of the pellet, and other pellets I found near it, I think it is from a Barn Owl."
When I was a kid in Minneapolis back in the Paleolithic, I found an owl pellet that was entirely crayfish skeleton near a pond. I wondered how an owl would catch crayfish; I suppose a hungry bird learns to catch whatever is available.
