Burrowing Owl skull.  (From roadkill.)Burrowing Owl Skull

Unlike mammals, birds have a skeletal structure in front of the eyes.  This provides extra muscles which permit it to focus better than we can.  Hence, Eagle-Eyed.  The two pictures below are of Red-Tailed Hawks.  The second skeleton does not have the eye-bone structure preserved.Red-Tailed Hawk Skull
