Subject: [birders] Hawk Poop
So, I was observing my local female Coop perched on my newly erected screech owl box, when she lifted her tail and emitted a propulsive stream of poo ten feet across the yard! My question is this: are their special muscles in the cloaca that contract to allow such a power poop? What evolutionary purpose might exist for having a fire extinguisher for an anus? I checked a couple of anatomy books, but there no discussion on this topic I guess I should be glad she didn’t dribble all over the box!
