Birds.  You should check birds in general because most black avians
will conflict with ravens (with, of course, the usual CDs for posture
and number, and position).

Right.  In fact, the stag's head is a primary charge in Eirik's
proposal and an overall charge in Andrew's device, therefore X.2.
complete change of primary charge clears these.

Orientation.  Position is where something is placed, orientation is 
where it points, etc.
Perfectly correct CD count, too.

I haven't actually conflict checked Eirik's proposal, but if you
checked all stags' heads, you would have caught any conflicts on
the device without the birds.
