Interesting Facts About Owl Pellets

Submitted by julia.murray on Tue, 05/09/2017 - 14:32

The students in Mrs. Makin's class really tore things apart! They dissected owl pellets and discovered the not so happy endings to some birds and rodents. They had gross fun picking through the pellets to find bones, teeth and other things.  One group found an ankle band from a not so lucky bird! Through research they found that it belonged to a racing pigeon that was on its way to Cedar City. Obviously, that bird did not win the race!
