Visual Bird Deterrents from Bird-B-Gone
Birds have remarkable vision. Good eyesight is essential for safe flights as well as safe landings and birds have a number of biological adaptations that result in visual acuity far above other vertebrates. Consider the following notable avian visual variations:
- Birds of prey’s eyes are packed with receptors for maximum visual acuity and their eyes are placed to give them the ability to accurately judge distances.
- Terns, gulls, and other seabirds have yellow and red oil drops in their receptors that enable them to see long distances even in foggy conditions typical of life near the ocean.
- Nocturnal birds such as owls have tubular eyes, low counts of color detectors, and high rod cell counts, allowing their eyes to function optimally in low light.
