Can Birds Move Their Eyes?

We can move our eyes back and forth or up and down, but birds cannot move their eyes at all.

To make up for this, most birds can turn their head around much farther and much more quickly than people can. Some birds can even turn their head completely around so they can look behind them!

But birds have excellent eyesight and can focus their eyes quickly. Some night- flying birds can see 100 times better than people can in the darkness!
