How birds see their world?

This website is intended for the general public to understand some basic differences between human and bird vision, and to learn about the diversity of visual systems in birds.

Currently, the contents are focused on two aspects of the bird visual systems: visual fields and head movements. We will include modules on visual acuity and color vision in the near future.

You can learn about each module by following the links on the left.  

We also offer talks to schools about bird vision. These talks are free. Do not hesitate to contact us to schedule one. 

If you would like to have more specialized information about vision in mammals and birds, please, have a look at the following links.

Thank you for your interest.
