Not the most attractive object to post up but it is interesting. I never thought I'd find an owl pellet. A lot of it it is luck, but learning where to look also helps. I've found two now, both on the ground near the trunk of a tree. This pellet is unusual because it's got the beak of a ring-necked parakeet in it. I spotted the bright green feathers when I picked it up, but only noticed the beak later. I don't think of an owl as something which would attack another bird, or scavenge. Every day you learn something new.

Quite one of my most favourite birds. Anything that's bright yellow and cheery deserves a moment of celebration. I take issue with one online source that described it as common, for I had never come across one until about a year ago. Maybe I used to walk around with my eyes closed. Question of the day: are all birds singing at the moment?
