PELLET CON­TENTS

Bird Watching (UK) - - Species Barn Owl -

As with many other birds, Barn Owls re­gur­gi­tate in­di­gestible ma­te­rial (which is mainly fur and bones) as pel­lets. ‘Dis­sected’ pel­lets re­veal ex­actly what an owl has been eat­ing, usu­ally con­sist­ing of lots of fur and the skulls, jaws, limb bones and ribs of mam­mals such as voles or other small ro­dents (as be­low) and shrews.
