All About Owls: Freebie

Friends~HOOT!  We have been learning about owls at my house this summer.  It has been such a fun adventure! We have been researching owls, experimenting and dissecting owl pellets!  I had no idea how amazing these nocturnal creatures really are!
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.
