Posts Tagged ‘red-tailed hawk tracks’

Went tracking with some friends today and saw a lot of cool stuff.  Really nice vole tracks, a rattlesnake, Red-tailed Hawk tracks, and a ton of owl pellets with perfect vole and pocket gopher skulls inside.  But the coolest thing that we found was a barn owl wing laying out in the grass.  Later we found a hollow tree and looked up inside to find the other wing and tail which we were able to pull down with a stick and examine.  I can’t think of what would have killed this barn owl and why half of it would be up in a hollow tree, and the other half out in the grass.  Very strange.  If anyone has ideas, I’d love to hear them.
