Crow Pellet #3

Am I a Crow Pellet magnet?  Seems that way!   Never saw one of these in my life until two years ago ,when  I watched a crow at the beach throw up something.  When I went over I saw my first pellet.   Not knowing what it was I did some research and posted my first blog post on them.  Here is the link to that post & a picture of my first pellet.

About a year later while walking around the docks at Jack Block Park off Alki I watched a crow do the same strange regurgitation.   There it was a gift in the form of a Crow Pellet for my inspection.  Yes I actually poked at it to see what was in it.

Last weekend I was walking on the sand revealed by a negative low tide.   I was feeding the crows some bread and enjoying their aerobatics and glee in free food.   When there upon the sand was a crow pellet.  My #3 discovery.  Yes I broke it apart too.   My curiosity had to be satisfied what they are eating.   Looks like some sort of berries but I can’t be really sure.  What do you think?
