This quest is relevant for current RuneScape and Old School.

Starting out

You begin the quest by talking to Charlie the Zookeeper in the Ardougne Zoo.

Charlie will tell you about some missing ferrets and how an associate Nickolous has gone off looking for a replacement. He will tell you that Nickolous was last known to be near Eagles Peak.

You could either, walk or you could catch the Balloon to the Grand Tree. You need to complete the quest Enlightened Journey to use the Balloons system. Alernatively you could use the fairy ring AKQ then run south.

Once you arrive you will need to go all the way around, until you find a deserted camp.

Finding Nickolaus

You should begin by inspecting the books and you'll get a book named "Bird Book". Once you open it, a Metal Feather will fall out.

Climb up the rocks, and inspect the Rocky Outcrop. You will notice that you have a feather in your inventory. Use the feather with the Outcrop, and an entrance will open.

You will arrive in the Eagles' lair. Head South East and you will enter a cutscene where you see Nickolaus. Talk to him and when you're done, take 10 giant feathers.


Teleport to Varrock, and then go to the Fancy Dress Shop, which is South of the East Bank, through the gate.

Talk to the Fancy Dress Shop Owner, and ask about a couple of Giant Eagle costumes.

You will need to get some Swamp Tar, and some Yellow Dye, these can be obtained from Lumbridge swamp, and from Aggie in Draynor Village respectively.

Head back to Eagles Peak with the costumes.

Getting to Nickolaus

You will now have to go to Nickolaus. Head south and try to go through the door. You won't be able to get through.

First we need to use the south west tunnel, enter it and you will find a feather sitting on a pedastal. Try to collect the feather

You wont get the feather, The pedastal will have been hoisted up into the air. Go to each corner and move the winch until the pedestal lowers.

Inspect the next pedestal. You will see some tracks coming away from it.

Inspect the western Rocks, and some more footprints will appear.

Inspect the other Rocks, and then inspect the Opening.

A Kebbit, which is level 20 will appear. Kill it and it will drop a Silver Feather.

Go back outside, and go to the top most tunnel on the east.

You will appear in a maze. Take some food from the Birdseed holder, you will need approximately 10.

Wearing your beak and eagle cape pass the eagle.

Talk to Nickolaus. The other Eagle costume will disappear, and you will be told to meet Nickolaus back at the campsite.

Catching a ferret

Go back down the rocks, and speak with Nickolaus.

Ask if you can get a Ferret, and he will give you one. He will offer to teach you how to catch your own.

A cutscene will show you waiting with Nickolaus, and then a ferret being captured.

All that is left is to take the ferret back down to Ardougne. Go talk to Charlie.
