Hibou - Ghost Owl
When I lived in France I watched the ghostly image of a Barn Owl hunting in the moonlight. The owl was killed by a fox and I found its remains. This one wing survived in immaculate condition and in what remained of its gut was the foetus of a mouse, which is displayed in formaldehyde in the bottle.
