Birds of a Feather – Hogwarts Legacy Quest

Birds of a Feather is an optional quest in Hogwarts Legacy. Marianne Moffett is interested in a large albino Diricawl known as Gwyneira. She’s become a local legend and poachers are after her, so Marianne wants to catch her before they can. Diricawls are being extra cautious around Marianne since she spends so much time at their den, but maybe you will have better luck in catching Gwyneira.

Before even starting this quest, it is highly recommended you at least start the main quest The Elf, The Nab-Sack, and the Loom, and get far enough to acquire a Nab-Sack — you won’t be able to finish this quest without it.

To start the quest Birds of a Feather, you will need to talk to Marianne Moffett. If you have never been to Poidsear Coast before (the southeast corner of the World Map), it can be tricky even reaching the area. Luckily, we have a How to Get to Poidsear Coast Guide to help you get there! From the North Poidsear Coast Floo Flame (where you will be after reaching Poidsear Coast for the first time), you will need to get on your broom and fly southeast until you reach Marunweem. Marianne will be just northeast from the Floo Flame in this hamlet.

Talking with her (with playstation square button/button xbox x v2) will begin Birds of a Feather, where she will ask for your help — she would like for you to capture a Diricawl known as Gwyneira before the poachers can, and bring it to her.

To get the the Diricawl den, get on your broom and fly northwest until you see a small hill with a single tree on top of it. Alternatively, if you’ve unlocked the South Poidsear Coast Floo Flame, you can just take that and fly west to reach the den. Gwyneira will not appear unless it is night time, so if you got here during the day, open your map and press playstation r3/button xbox rightstickpressto wait until nightfall. Equip your Nab-Sack and Levioso when you’re ready.

Once you find Gwyneia, lock onto her and cast Levioso to prevent her from running. You will have to attempt to capture her with the Nab-Sack four times, so she may escape and start running once or twice (you will see the dots under her track your attempts) — if this happens, just cast Levioso again quickly and repeat the process until you’ve successfully captured her.

Return to Marianne, who will be in the same spot as when you started this quest. Talk to her to give her the Diricawl, though you can choose to make her pay more for it, or keep Gwyneia for yourself. (There are no consequences for asking for more money and a lot of galleons you could gain, as we discuss in our How to Make Gold guide).
