Having purchased and dissected an owl pellet from an educational store,
I was familiar with what owl pellets looked like.
Earlier this week, I asked my son to take our the trash.
He called me excitedly and said that I MUST come
look at this "thing" on the trash can lid.
I called my home school friend who lives down the street.
She brought two of her children, her rubber gloves, and her science tools.
We proceeded to dissect both pellets.
I should also add that we live in a
residential area about four blocks from downtown.
Who says you can't do nature study in the city?
