Birds of prey also appear to be fearless, which means "evil" can't touch them.
And birds are often thought to be signs of righteousness, hence why ghosts can't touch them. I mean, this seems like a possibility to me.
I never really considered this before but I think you have a really good point. Birds are usually associated with good (the phoenix, the eagle, etc) and many are expert hunters. This is a totally different approach to the question and I think it makes sense and holds a lot weight :3
