Two questions about using Bird

After taking a little glimpse at the User's Guide, there're still two
questions I still not quite understand:

1. Bird is a Linux daemon. I noticed that if I have installed Quagga,
then when I try to install Bird, the operating system would require me
to uninstall Quagga first. However there's another one called XORP,
and it seems to be a platform or application for developing or
studying routing protocol rather than a daemon. So can I intsall both
XORP and Bird on a single Linux PC? Will they conflict with each

2. Does Bird provide a way to monitor OSPFv2? Like display the LSDB or
display the routing table, etc.
