Owl Pellets!!


A few entries ago, I posted about our plans to study the book OWL MOON using FIAR.  We really enjoyed that book and if you'll remember, I posted about wanting owl pellets.


Well......thanks to a dear FIAR Mom, (Thanks, Missy!!) we had owl pellets!


I am really bad about that stubborn, type-A personality.  You know, all or nothing?  I have been using FIAR since 1999 and never 'rowed Owl Moon because I felt the studies would be incomplete without owl pellets.


This time, (child #4 using FIAR) I broke down and did this study.  Hmmm....or maybe the children have broken down my perfectionistic outlook...... uuummmmm...... By the look of the house, I would say this could be it........


Anyway, I broke down and planned this study and followed through, without owl pellets.  Then Missy came through with her extras.


What fun we had!  Even though a couple of the kids were completely grossed out, they just kept digging.  Cade hovered so closely that his nagging little cough continuously blew the fluff and bones around! It was both amusing and highly annoying!


Here are a couple of pictures of the finished dissection, for your viewing pleasure!

This picture is the entire owl pellet:  fur bits, misc. particles (?), and bones.

This is a close up shot of the bones and bone fragments we found.


Pretty cool, huh??
