Why do baby owls sleep face down?
But younger owls struggle to do so and have to lie down while napping. Some birds and animals are born with normal-sized heads, some with tiny heads and some with big very big heads. So big and heavy that their body can’t support its weight when they are sleeping. So, they sleep face down.
