Owl Pellet Party @ Fountain libraryLibrary: Fountain Library - 230 S. Main Street
Join us at the Fountain Library to dissect Owl Pellets. What are Owl Pellets you say? Owls, like many other birds, eat their food whole. Since birds do not have teeth, they can't chew their food. Therefore, they use their strong and sharp beaks to rip their prey apart and then swallow large chunks whole. The owl slowly digests its meal by separating the softer materials (such as meat) from the harder material (such as bones). It then regurgitates the harder material along with indigestible items such as feathers and fur in the form of a pellet. Great fun for budding biologists!! Registration Required!!
