Aaahhh... No, you won't.
Like he said, the way NV gogles and IR cameras work are very different.
Altough some NV gogles use IR to enhance light and dark areas, not all NV use that.
IR cameras project IR light to the dark and captures it (that's why you see the peoples eyes glowing, reflection) like light.
NV gogles enhance the light that is already there, they don't project IR. You know why? Because if you are a soldier (not saying this person is one)
a projection of IR would give away your position, since it can be detected by IR cameras far away.
What he said is, in fact, correct. If this camera used some type of NV gogles, if the objects were birds, it wouldn't reflect the IR light projected
from the camera (that's what happens with those cases of bats and birds).
If this isn't a camera/gogles with IR projection, then the birds would react like any other object.
