Evolution: Pitviper Scavenging ...

Bald eagles are primarily carrion feeders, again this is based on
visual identification of food -- a dead fish LOOKS like a live one, a
dead (non-flattened) rabbit looks like a rabbit, etc. [ Golden eagles
are considered 'hunters', IIRC. ]

Few bird species sense odors; and, their visual recognition abilities
of inanimate and stationary objects amaze me.

Oh, Tonu, without reference book(s), I 'suck' at birds.
