The hawk has a vision 10 times better than human

Hawks live all around the world. There are over 50 species of true hawk, most of which belong to the genus Accipiter.

The typical hawk is believed to have 20/2 vision, as opposed to the 20/20 vision of an average human. This means that a hawk can see an object 20 feet (6 meters) away that a human could only see from a distance of two feet (0.6 meters).

They also have an indented fovea, at the back of the eyeball, which serves to magnify the center of the visual field.
