Stomach contents were analyzed using microscopic feather characters and osteological comparisons to document the first record of a Razorbill (Alca torda) being eaten by a Snowy Owl (Bubo scandiacus). Careful comparisons of fragmented morphological evidence in combination with geographic location and other circumstantial data can enhance dietary analyses, especially when it is difficult to obtain DNA sequences from the degraded and digested stomach contents.
