Tuesday Teaser 010615: Pellet-pourri

What better way to start the new year than a trifecta Tuesday Teaser owl-pellet-palooza?

Can you identify the species of owls that coughed these pellets in the Meadowlands? (Click image to enlarge.)

We are certain of two of the three pellet producers, and have a hunch who the other coughivore was.

BTW, we are thinking that the two pellets in the middle photo are a former small mammal and a former small bird. All part of the food chain, folks.

Also, to be clear, the owls did not cough up the quarter or the ruler. They are included to give you a sense of size. That said, if you do come across any sort of an animal coughing up coinage, please let us know. We promise to put the money to good use.

Answers on Thursday.

    Probably going to get this wrong, but here’s my guesses left to right: Great Horned Owl, Eastern Screech Owl, and Snowy Owl.
