Put on your detective hats! After digesting its meal, an owl coughs up dry pellets* of compacted fur, feathers, and bone fragments. Learn how to dissect an owl pellet to solve the mystery of what the owl has been eating. Find out how researchers use these pellets to collect important information about owls and their prey. Plus, learn about other aspects of an owl's life story. All ages are welcome.

*Pellets have been heat treated to remove insects and potentially harmful bacteria.
