Color vision makes birds of prey successful hunters

Color vision makes birds of prey successful hunters

In many cases it is the color of the prey that helps predatory birds to detect, pursue and capture them. In a new study, biologists show that the Harris's hawk has the best color vision of all animals investigated to date -- and in certain situations, even better than humans. The findings may help to protect threatened birds of prey against hazards such as wind turbines and power lines.
