But, though the eyes of owls are incapable of any movement at all in their sockets, most birds are capable of forward convergence toward the tip of the beak: as is well known, the bittern can direct its eyes almost vertically downward (in the morphological sense) so that an intruder may be scrutinized with both eyes when the bird is in its characteristic cryptic posture with the beak pointing toward the zenith. II. The Retina Apart from the presence of specialized regions (areae and foveae) the retina of diurnal birds is characterized by the very high densities of cones.
