Noah's Owl Pellet

Noah found another owl pellet, I've never found one. It did look like a cat hair ball or piece of old dog poop, but he stood over it, blocked the path to protect it and called out "owl pellet!" He teased it apart before he took the picture.
Is it because his eyes are better, he's closer to the ground or just really in tune with excrement?

It was likely 3/4 inch in diameter, certainly bigger than a 1/2 pipe but it was wet, so likely swelled some.  The bones I assume to be femurs were quite large.  We are going to try to reconstruct it in a couple days.  We'll keep you posted.

Hi guys,

How big was this owl pellet? I wonder what you have that is coughing these up...It is definitely eating largish rodents. I would be tempted to say they are from a Great Horned Owl.
