Think of it as a suggestion. Let's say that you want a character with Looks: Full or Perfect to have a Beak or Talons, All you'd have to do is pick and choose. Although, you MIGHT want to as the person(s) running the game if he/she/they'd allow it. It's up to them to allow it.

Kind of surprised that the Raptors don't automatically get Advanced Vision or the Turkey Vulture Advanced Smell.

A thing that has always irked me about AtB2 birds is all of the different flight options available to a species that shouldn't be. I think the type of flight should be limited to the basic structure/physiology of the original bird. But that is a call PB made when designing the game.

Silent Flight - Only available to Owls for the special type of feather they have on the leading edge of their wings.
Soaring Flight - Only available to birds that actually utilize that method or have the wing structure for it. Condors, buzzards, eagles, sea birds, etc.
Raptor flight - Well that's easy enough it's right there in the name.
Acrobatic flight - Smaller birds that don't have the wing structure to allow them to soar.
Basic flight/Glide - everyone can have that.

Thanks for the fishhawks...I see bald eagles with increasing frequency along the Connecticut River, and the ospreys along Cape Cod(one couple even nests on top of a piling right next to the busy Steamship Authority slip in Woods Hole).
Seeing the birds of prey return in numbers, when as a child I hardly remember seeing them at all?
We must be doing something right. :D 8)
