4​. OWLS FEED THE STRONGEST BABIES.

As extreme as it sounds, the moms and dads constantly feed the oldest and greatest owlet prior to its brother or sister. This implies that if food is limited, the youngest chicks will starve.

After an owlet leaves the nest, it often lives nearby in the very same tree, and its moms and dads still bring it food. If it can make it through the first winter by itself, its possibilities of survival are excellent.
