Nature Quiz - British Birds - Birds of Prey (Questions)

Birds of prey are birds that hunt for food primarily on the wing, using their keen senses, especially vision. Because of their predatory lifestyle, often at the top of the food chain, they face distinct conservation concerns. See how much you know in the following Natural History quiz on the subject.

RSPB Wildlife Explorers Save birds of prey appeal Some of our rarest and most spectacular birds of prey are under threat. You can help the RSPB by joining their save birds of prey campaign.
