While I know Kalamazoo has owls, I hardly ever see them. Mostly, I'd guess, because they're active at night. I hadn't thought about owls in my own backyard until my daughter found this owl pellet on a tree branch. Since then, I've been looking on occasion but without success, so far.
I don't know if it was from Screech Owl, a Great Horned Owl, or a Barred Owl. The neat package of fur and bones was pretty interesting.
I teach economics at Kalamazoo College. My wife is also an economist. We were on sabbatical in Europe for the 2014-15 academic year. (Salamanca, Spain, followed by Oxford, UK.) We were in Uruguay for the 2006-7 academic year.
