What kind of droppings are these?
1 Attachment(s)
I was in my semifinished basement and I found these droppings in the corner . This is really recent activity as i was just in that room the other day and it wasn't there. After looking around I found more but just a little. It doesn't look like it came from a mouse or rat. I'm hoping its not from a snake. Help!

Bird droppings?
It is not a bat or a rodent. Neither a squirrel. Snake, I doubt it.
Bird droppings.

I agree, bird droppings. Why are they concentrated in one spot? What is directly above the droppings?

It's a room we use for storage. Nothing is above it, just the ceiling. That's what makes it so odd. If a bird had gotten in somehow we would have heard it bumping around. My bedroom shares a wall with that room...

Well we found the culprit, it was a mole.

or a shrew...
Either way, it wasn't a snake ...
