UPCHUCK

Lee French recently go this photo of a Great Gray Owl spitting out its pellet.  In the Cascades east of Ashland.Casting pelletGGOs eat mostly small mammals so their diet includes a high proportion of fur, plus tiny bones and even tinier teeth.  They will occasionally take small birds off the ground.  One birder shared photo with me of a GGO eating baby Mountain Quail–never a common occurence.
