We finally got around to taking down the owl house and opened the nest box. We confirmed that a Blue Jay and a Cedar Waxwing were among the prey this season. Picking through the nest contents revealed some interesting items: a Blue Jay beak , some insect legs, a little piece of owl eggshell (the rest were probably eaten by the mother). The Blue Jay bill is interesting, because we usually don't see that. Birds usually arrive headless when brought by a parent. So, this season, as usual, the number of birds as prey is fairly small (two), with most of the food having been reptiles and insects.
See you next February/March for the next season.
