Eyes And Ears
Owls have very large eyes. Owls can change the focus on their eyes rapidly and see great distances.At night their pupils get big this allows more light to enter into their eyes,giving them unusually good vision in the dark.
Most owls rely on their hearing for hunting rather then their excellent vision.Their ears are behind their facial disk feathers.These disks act like disk antennas to funnel sound to their ears.Owls are constantly turning their heads to hear better.Owls can't move their eye stocks.
