I can't believe that we seem to see the same owl every night - it has to be resident and perhaps is using the floodlight to hunt?????
Goodness me - heres our owl again
The answer , from Campbell, is that 'the light is infrared, not white light the animals cannot see the light, as a result it is also limiting on the camera, but is better from an environmental point of view'
Now, the question is.... can owls 'see' infrared light? Hmmmmm.....?
erm....... I think that is why the pics are so clear at night? At least I assumed so :oops:
When the cam pans away from the waterhole you can 'see' an area of light..... but I will check this out to be sure.
I would think so penny - as I am sure you know, owls often end up as 'road-kill' because they 'know' that small animals and insects are attracted to the headlights of cars, and so use roads as hunting grounds.
In theory most owls should not need light to find prey - their hearing is far superior to their sight - but I expect that the lazier owls appreciate having better vision in addition to their superb auditory abilities!
