It is absolutely difficult for human to survive the night without any light source. However, these nocturnal birds aka birds that can see at night have amazing night vision. They treat nighttime just like daytime without a problem. These birds use their gift in different tasks like hunting or migrating. When the night comes, they start their missions. Some fly afar while the others hunt around their home. Also, nocturnal birds rest during daytime while camouflaging in the trees or burrows.
