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 »
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 »
