Owling in Big Bay!

We went up to Big Bay for the day early this spring, searching for the elusive morrel mushroom to no avail. We had a spontaneous lesson on owls! We, and when I say we I mean my husband, spotted a beautiful Barred Owl in one of the trees along the trails we were on. Yes, folks that's owl puke and in school the kids and I dissected a sterilized one of these! We found the remains of a disgusting little mouse...eck!
