To start we headed to the library and stocked up on some books for our research. Here are a few of my favorites. Click any of the images to check them out!
We also watched this video of a Great Gray Owl video on YouTube! The eyes on this little guy are amazing!
We dissected an owl pellet! It was so awesome!!!!! My son Ian was totally into it.
Check him out below. I think we were both shocked at all the bones we found. We are pretty sure it was a bird that our owl ate.
It really was the coolest experiment. Ian was so gentle as he pulled the bones from the pellet.
We used the bone chart that came with our pellet. Here is the pellet we used. You can click to purchase if you are interested.
This is the bone chart that was provided with our pellet.
