Owl Diet Detective: Uncover the Mysteries of Owl Diets!

February 14 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

  • This event has passed.

Join us for an exciting exploration into the world of owls and their unique eating habits! Unlike other birds, owls swallow their prey whole because they lack teeth for chewing. Our Owl Pellet Dissection program provides a fascinating insight
into these nocturnal predators. Recommended for grades 2-6.

What you’ll discover:

  • Owl Dining Secrets: Learn how owls consume mice, voles, small birds, and more.
  • Pellet Examination: Delve into regurgitated pellets, consisting of bones, teeth, fur, and feathers.
  • Scientific Investigation: By dissecting the pellets, we unveil the diverse diet of owls and the frequency of different prey.

Safety & hygiene:

Each pellet is dry heat sterilized. Gloves and dissection tools are provided to ensure a safe and hygienic experience.

An investigative workshop…

…that is not just a lesson in biology, but also a window into the ecological role of owls in our environment. Get ready to become a junior ornithologist and uncover the mysteries hidden within owl pellets!
