Join us for fun and learning at the Headwaters! This is a FREE program offered in partnership with the McKenna Children’s Museum on Thursday evenings throughout the summer.
Owls are birds of prey, which means they hunt the animals they eat. After an owl eats the small rodents, birds, and bugs that are part of its nightly diet, its stomach cannot digest the fur, bones, teeth, feathers, and insect shells from that food. These “extra” parts are formed into a tight pellet inside the owl and are later spit up. Our scientists will have the opportunity to examine the inside of their owl pellet!
