Burrowing Owl Anatomy?

Recommended Posts

My wife and I watched a Florida Burrowing Owl attentively preen the protrusion shown in the attached photos.  At first I was thinking the protrusion must be the base of a new or lost feather, but in searching the Internet, I found a statement saying 3% of the roughly 10,000 bird species have a p-nis within the cloaca.  

Anyone know what we actually captured in the photos?
