So, this chunk o'stuff was left on the top of a handrail post at my dock last week (4 feet tall post). I actually think it is more likely to have been regurgitated rather than defecated, but I thought I'd throw it out their for the community to comment on. It was entirely made up of crawdad exoskeleton parts and when I flipped it (yes, I touched it) it fell apart into all the little bits. There was nothing substantial holding it together nor was there any smell.

It was 1 inch wide and almost 2 inches long...

Whatever it is, its eating my crawdads!

Looks like an Owl pellet to me.

Owl pellets usually are a loose collection of bones, cartilage and other leftovers from what they have been eating. Commonly a mix of mice, small voles, or of they are near a pond you will see frogs, toads or crayfish.

Since this one enjoys your crayfish, it would be cool to set up a game camera or 2 on your dock and you will probably get some cool footage!
