    Default use

    1.Are these two(use) right?

    a. The black-faced spoonspills can use their bills to catch fish easily.

    b. I want to use my eyes to watch black-faced spoonspills.

    2. Or have to rewrite like these:

    a. The black-faced spoonspills can catch fish easily with their bills.

    b. I would like to watch black-faced spoonspills with my own eyes.

    Thank you.
