A County Supper

A couple of weeks ago, just before I left Prince Edward County and headed back to the hamlet I came across the remains of someone's supper just by the side of the house.

These were remains unlike any I've seen before. The ribs are there, and both thighs, one still attached to the pelvis. It's the ribs that are surprising. No snow cover means no tracks, but I strongly suspect that these are the remains of a great horned owl's supper.

This is the chickadee picture I've been trying to set up for weeks. This day in the County, I "pished" and the bird came and sat for me!
