Spokane students learn science hands on, dissect owl pellets
Spokane eighth-graders are studying the energy flow in an ecosystem. If you start at the top of the food chain, you can trace this energy flow by seeing what is being eaten by predators. When barn owls eat prey, they digest what can be used and everything else is vomited up in an owl “pellet.” By dissecting these pellets and identifying the skulls that have been eaten, you can construct a food web showing the different relationships in the ecosystem. The students found mice, vole, shrew and bird skulls in their pellets and had a lot of fun during the project. Pictured from left, Anna Kootz, Kaylynn Don Juan and Bryce Nichols.
