How does a night bird see the objects? What is the difference in the structures of the eyes of night bird and day light birds?

Answer :

Night bird (owl) can see very well in the night but not during the day. On the other hand, day light birds (kite, eagle) can see well during the day but not in the night. The owl has a large cornea and a large pulpit to allow more light in its eye. Also, it has on its retina mostly rods and only a few cones. As we have seen above, cones are more sensitive to bright light and rods to dim light. The day birds on the other hand, have more cones and a fever rods.
