In February 2004, we collected 104 long-eared owl (Asio otus) pellets from beneath a large pine tree in northern Wichita, Kansas that served as a winter roost for approximately four individuals. A detailed analysis of this collection provided basic information on pellet morphology (length, width, total weight, and weight of skeletal remains), as well as gross (% mammal, % bird) and fine (mammalian species composition) determinations of the long-eared owl's winter diet in this urban location. Long-eared owl urban roosts are somewhat uncommon, and this information might be valuable to owl researchers and other ecologists interested in urban wildlife.
