Female bald eagle foot.
I found these tracks at Oxbow Park near Portland. The owl made 3 tracks - 2 right and 1 left - moving right to left. Note the K shape of each track. Contrast this with woodpecker.
I found brush rabbit tracks close by, headed straight for the point where the owl hit the ground. I infer that owl struck at the rabbit but missed.
Owls regurgitate the hair and bones of their prey as an owl pellet.
