photo by Jenny Jo Johnson - bird legs found in LEOW pellet

Observation details

despite our best efforts at stealth they flushed from same roost trees where several have wintered annually since at least 2013; glimpsed only 2 owls but there appears to be 3 heavily white-washed perch spots in 3 side-by-side cedar trees of dense stand; collected ~30 pellets for Jenny Jo Johnson's homeschool group who dissected ~20 of them on April 24 and found "most had voles. Two had shrews. And there was one bird" (photo of legs below).
