Birds of Prey - Owls


Owls are mostly nocturnal predators. They apparently lack color vision and see shades of gray. They cannot move their eyes but they can move their heads halfway around. To help them locate prey, some owls (nocturnal ones) have their ear canals at different levels. This allows them to determine the position of a sound better.
