Sorry about this, but we find a couple of these every morning on our back porch where we feed the birds.  They run anywhere from an inch to and inch-and-three-quarters.  We figure it's either from a White-winged Dove or a critter.  Does anyone know?

I could be an owl pellet. Start your research there and report back.

OK, Bosque Bill.  The past two mornings, I checked early (6 AM) and saw no pellets.  I was thinking if it was owls, they would be leaving pellets at night.  This morning, sometime between 10 and 11, I found another pellet.  The White-wings and Mourning doves feed here somewhat regularly (in waves, it seems)  till around noon, then sporadically the rest of the day.  I didn't see who left it, but would I be right concluding it wasn't an owl based on the time frame?

Skip, I can't fault your reasoning regarding the timing of the deposit. I also can't think it is another species of bird, such as your doves, as I don't think the size or firmness would apply. I'm stumped.
