This scat was found in a clearing in a Douglas Fir woodland. There are about 30 little pieces that all have a golden sheen in the sunlight. They appear to be composed of grasses and are about 1 cm in diameter. They are relatively spherical but have a bit of an elliptical shape.
About 10 feathers in the same area. There are Douglas fir trees above an open area where the feathers are found. Earlier in the day, there were about 4 turkey vultures in the surrounding trees. Some of the feathers are fluffy and some are smoother in texture. All the feathers are grey on the top and white on the bottoms. The largest feather is about 6 cm in length. The grey color extends for about 2/3 along the length of the feathers. The white color is only at the base of the feathers. The bottom half of the feathers are downy in texture. The smallest feather is less than an inch in length.
This scat is almost black. It was found on a rock in the shade under oak trees with about 60% canopy cover. It is about 3 cm in length and appears to be made if smaller pieces, maybe seeds. There is no visible fur in the scat.
The rachis length is about 15 cm. the fern is soft in texture. Each pinnae has infividual pinnae. The tips of the fern are yellow/ brown and the stem is also yellow/Brie. The majority of the fern is green in color. There is only one frond on the fern. The tip of the fern is missing. I did not see any sori on the back of the fern.
