Birds of Prey Identification Chart
This identification chart covers all 15 of the species of day-flying birds of prey which breed in the UK
Birds of prey can be highly variable and your view of the bird may be fleeting but by looking at pictures side-by-side you can generally narrow down the choice to two or three species. To help confirm your identification, we have included particular hints for each species as well as highlighting the main areas of confusion. On the reverse side of this bird of prey guide you can learn about the habitat and range, size, status and flight pattern of each species.
The bird of prey identification chart was produced in partnership with the Hawk and Owl Trust, it has a laminated surface that can be cleaned by wiping with a damp cloth
