Commentary:

the eagle...
  Leviticus 11:13-19.

white vulture
  (Targum Yonathan). Ra'ah in Hebrew. This is seen as a species of ayah (Chullin 63b; cf. Ibn Janach). Others see the ra'ah as the kite, the same as the da'ah in Leviticus 11:14 (Chullin 63b).

black vulture
  (Targum Yonathan). Ayah in Hebrew, translated as 'vulture' in Leviticus 11:14.

kite
  Daya in Hebrew, the same as the da'ah in Leviticus 11:14 (Saadia; Onkoles translates both as deitha).
