McNair Middle School students have been dissecting owl pellets in Debra Fox’s classes! Pellets are a record of what owls have eaten, and students can study them to learn more about the owl and the ecosystems in which they live. Owls swallow their food whole, and owl pellets have been regurgitated from the owl's beak. When students dissect owl pellets, they can see and identify the tiny bones from that owl's meal and can learn about the owl's diet and their place in the food web.
