Superb Owl Sunday Halftime Show

Some large owl pellets spotted recently in the Borough of Kings.Considering I previously saw a Great Horned Owl in this tree, it’s a good bet these belong to that critter, although I saw no sign of the bird when I found these.To recap, owls gobble their food whole or in chunks — bones, fur, feathers, and all. The indigestible parts are spit back up in these pellets. Other raptors, gulls, kingfishers, etc., also hawk up pellets, but owls are best known for the practice. Last year, we watched the #BrooklynKestrels gag up a few. It takes a while.

    And a Susan B — even more rare to be spotted in the wild.
