Test your knowledge (free)


Who is this course for?

This easy to use knowledge quiz is for anyone who already keeps, or who intends to keep a bird of prey or owl.

Based on the question bank from our most popular courses it will help you quickly determine your current level of background knowledge and understanding, and will help you improve the health and wellbeing of your birds of prey.

All questions are based on The National Standards for Bird of Prey Welfare, and the expert knowledge of some of the world’s leading falconers and raptor specialist vets


Birds of prey and owls are unlike most other animals kept in captivity.  Consequently, keeping and flying raptors requires an above average level of knowledge to safeguard their welfare and to ensure their longevity.

This quiz will help you establish your baseline of understanding.    Competent raptor keepers should easily achieve 100%, but don’t worry if you get a few wrong – we don’t share your results with anyone!

If you feel that you could do with a little more knowledge and understanding, then the range of Raptor Awards Courses should offer something suitable for you to study at home.   Successful completion of all our self-study courses are formally certificated for your own personal record of achievement.

Full and part time face to face courses to develop your practical skills can be taken at any of our network of approved centres across the UK and in selected other countries.
