Owls have extraordinary night vision, it is often thought that they are blind in strong light or day light. This is not true.
Most nocturnal animals are largely inactive during the day to avoid over-stimulating their highly sensitive eyes (They have more rods and less cones and are very sensitive to light.). Nocturnal animals have specialized pupils to shut out damaging bright light. So, they are relatively inactive during day or in strong light area in the night.
Some species of Owls can actually see better than humans in bright light.
