Before and after. Owl pellet dissections.

Undigestable material such as fur, feathers,  bones and exoskeleton collect in the owl’s crop and are coughed up later as a neat pellet.  These are usually coughed up approximately one to two days after the meal.

This pellet belonged to a Barred Owl.

A Katydid (Microcentrum rhombifolium) on a wall. These insects are related to grasshoppers and so closely resemble leaves that on a tree, you would never notice one but against a brick wall they stand out like a sore thumb. 
They normally fly away from danger so I was pretty surprised that I was able to get so close with my camera phone
