7/365 - Science project

While we were away at the weekend we had so many awesome nature experiences - watching otters playing on the icy lake, seeing a muskrat swim under us as we walked on said lake, and a Bald Eagle soaring over our heads.

Today I got even more closely in touch with nature than that, by dissecting an owl pellet we found whilst exploring the area. (I say owl pellet, but it may have been produced by another bird if prey, I'm no expert).

No skull evidence, but lots of tiny bones, I'm guessing the remains of a poor wee mouse.
