Kids play "owl detective" at the Westmont Public Library on Saturday, July 27, 2013. Jill Dold helps Daniel Hsiao, 9, of Willowbrook, identify a bone as he dissects an owl pellet to see what kind of small animal was eaten, separating the bones from fur and other parts the owl couldn't digest using plastic forceps and a pointed probe.
