Do birds see color the same way people do?

    In fact birds do not.  They are thought to see colors better then humans.  While humans only have photo-pigments at three peak wavelenghts, birds have photo-pigments that peak at four or five different wavelengths.  Some species of birds have an eyesight that even stretches into the ultraviolet spectrum.  Birds seem to have a complexity of eyesight that may contain more colors, but is not understood by the human eye.  Just as a colorblind person does not know what certain colors would look like for a person who is not colorblind.
