Cough!

A pellet of pieces of shell and pebbles. Found on a pier on the Piankatank, along with some other samples that had been smushed and otherwise disassembled. Diameter of a quarter and quite round. Who do you suppose chucked it up? Grebes, Kingfishers, Loons, Osprey out there: but they’re all fish-eaters.

    If it was a scavenger (gull?), shell fragments and pebbles might have been attached to the food and been gulped down with the meat/fish. Possible?
