Today I went to dissect owl pellets at the Cochran Mill Nature Center. In the owl pellets we could find small animal bones, fur, and feathers. I found a shrew skull. Owl pellets are basically owl throw up. It is all the stuff they can't digest, which winds up in their gizzard. The four types of owls that live in GA are the Barn Owl, the Barred Owl, the Great horned Owl, and the Screech Owl.
