The barn owl is probably the most popular animal in classroom study. This is primarily due to a by-product of this nocturnal raptor - owl pellets. The program describes the habits of the barn owl and its life cycle from courtship through fledging of young. Computer animation is used to show adaptations which allow the barn owl to find prey in darkness and process food into nutrients and pellets. The final portion is devoted to an overview of classroom techniques with owl pellets, including dissection and identification of prey and their skeletal parts. 15 minutes.
