Things do crap in the woods.

let me clarrify

I am in north eastern michigan (no moose!) The pellets were about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch long. After thinking about it and looking at the picture, could it be pellets from an eagle or an owl? (A whole lot of pellets) I didn't really look up to see if there was a nest, but I will go back next weekend and check if thats what someone thinkks it may be.

Cant tell for certain, but if that tree just ahead of the pile of poo is hollow you have a porkupine living up in it and letting it rip down the pipe.

Ground dweller--look at that worn log

I'm betting that tree in the backround is hollow and you have found a porcupine den. It sort of resembles owl crap but a little large. I give the nod to porcupine. Check the area for tracks.

Not owl poo. Owl poop is larger, like a couple inches long and 3/4 around. It looks like a cacoon (sp) and is filled with bones from mice and little critters that they eat. It's from porkies.

I did find a dead porcupine about 30 yds from it. I will have to go back and check out if the tree is hollow. I bet it is. I didn't check though. what do they do when the fill the tree up? Find another one. that is a lot of crap from a porcupine!

They look like smart pills. Of course you`ll have to taste them to find out if you got any smarter.:darkbeer:
