This is an owl pellet. After an owl eats the rodents, birds, and bugs that are a part of its nightly diet, its stomach cannot digest the fur, bones, teeth, feathers, and insect shells from that food. These parts are formed into a tight pellet inside the owl and are then are later spit out by the owl.
David Clipner, Wildlife & School Programs Director of the Leslie Science & Nature Center, shows us some of the bones found in an owl pellet.
