I really am quite okay with "birds of prey" in this particular context...

For the falcon/parrot connection google “falcons related to parrots?”—you’ll get lots of hits.

And that, my friend, is all the spoon-feeding you’ll get from me on this topic.
Makes sense moving Owls closer to raptors for practicality in book form as would, for a lot of people, placing Swifts near Swallows but that's another matter yet they'll further mess the books up by putting Falcons next to Parrots.

I'll be interested to see what the authors do with this order.
