To determine the sex of rodent prey in the pellets, we first identified all deer mouse, microtine, and western harvest mouse (Reithrodontomys megalotis) innommates.
Interestingly, some mammals that are expected to be present in the area were not found in the pellets, including harvest mouse (Reithrodontomys megalotis), prairie vole (Microtus ochrogaster), and brown rat (Rattus norvegicus), all of which have been reported in Saw-whet and/or Long-eared Owl pellets previously (Graber 1962, Swengel and Swengel 1992).
Western harvest mice, Reithrodontomys megalotis, are used as a prairie indicator species but low capture probabilities in Indiana may make them unreliable for this purpose at this eastern edge of their range.
We captured with Sherman traps 5 montane colilargos Microryzomys minutus (Cricetidae, Rodentia) and 3 Mexican harvest mice Reithrodontomys mexicanus (Cricetidae, Rodentia); footprints on the sand of these two rodent species could not be told apart.
In this study, the taxonomic diversity of small mammals included four species of squirrels (Sciurus carolinensis, Sciurus niger, Glaucomys volans, and Tamias striatus), one species of shrew (Blarina carolinensis), and seven species of cheek rodents (Mus musculus, Sigmodon hispidus, Peromyscus leucopus, P gossypinus, Ochrotomys nuttalli, Oryzomyz palustris, and Reithrodontomys humulis).

The data will be integrated with findings for other endangered tidal marsh species, such as the salt marsh harvest mouse (Reithrodontomys raviventris).
