Where owls see so much better than we do is in the dark.
Sort of myth: Owls are nocturnal.
Some species are out primarily at night (like Barn Owls), but some are out more at dawn and dusk (like Great Horned Owls), and some are out during the day (like Burrowing Owls).
I did a lot of presentations about owls when I volunteered for Hungry Owl Project. I loved telling children about owl “superpowers”. So today I’m going to start talking about one of the superpowers we’re all most familiar with: Owl Vision.
Myth: Owls can’t see during the day.
Not true! Owls don’t see color well (about that later), but otherwise, they see about as well as we do during the day.
