7th grade dissects owl pellets!

The 7th grade had a blast wrapping up our study of ecosystems by dissecting owl pellets! An owl pellet is a regurgitated pellet of undigested fur, feathers, skulls, and bones of prey animals. Dissecting these pellets allowed us to make connections to the food webs we studied in our chapter, as it showed us how many different species end up as food for a barn owl.
