Presqu'ile Provincial Park - I thought I'd give you a rare glimpse into the world of the Snowy Owl. If you look closely you'll see that this bird is in the process of coughing up a pellet which consists of undigested fur, bones and in this specific case, a few small feathers (duck may have been on the menu). It took it about a minute before the pellet was expelled. This shot was about 5 seconds before it was out. The gray mass is about 2" long and nearly an inch wide. By examining owl pellets you can gauge what its recent meals have been.
