Trivia

In the original book series the characters of Tawny Owl, Adder, Weasel, and Kestrel were all male but female in the TV series. However, Kestrel still had the colors of a male kestrel rather than a female. The name of Tawny Owl was also changed from the books to just Owl in the series. See more »

Goofs

The weasel in the series is greatly oversized, being depicted as similar in size to an otter. In reality, weasels are tiny animals, smaller than rats. See more »
