I was wandering around Banyule Swamp this morning when I found a Kookaburra.

Taking some photos I noticed that when the bird's head was turned at a
particular angle the eyes looked clouded, but on a different angle they
appeared clear (see attached photos).

Does anyone know what this is?  Is it an optical thing, related to the
efficiency of the eyes, or something else?
