  1. Karla, does the male owl do much with the care of the owlets? Will he begin feeding them eventually? Or, is his job in the wild to provide food for the female? What is his parental role?

    1. Dad just brings food. He doesn't tear it up for them or do anything other than drop it off. So he's not able to feed them directly until they can handle whole prey themselves. And yes, he gives food to mom too.
