Under Trees

A pellet expelled by…?
Something that eats insects.
You can just see the chevron-like markings of a Differential Grasshopper’s hind leg here. These are our biggest grasshoppers. American Kestrels eat them.
Another pellet, larger and without large chitin or bone parts. Found under another pine.
This time of year, conifers provide cover for raptors. These are wing feathers of a male Wood Duck who seems to have had a fowl fate.
This was a woodpecker.
A Blue Jay.
I will spare you the mammal scat. This is a clump of pine resin.
And this is a pepper, maybe a Scotch Bonnet? Under an out-of-the-way pine in Green-Wood like everything else pictured here. Question mark!
