Harry Potter - Hedwigs

Harry Potter - Hedwigs 1Harry Potter - Hedwigs
Hedwig is Harry Potter's owl. According to J. K. Rowling, Hedwig is a Snowy Owl, which Rowling considers to be the most beautiful owl of the lot. In the story, Hedwig is a gift to Harry from Hagrid in the first book of the series, purchased in Diagon Alley while shopping for supplies for Harry's first year at Hogwarts. The name Hedwig is a name Harry found Harry Potter - Hedwigs 2in his school book, A History of Magic. Hedwig is used for messages throughout the series. Keeping Hedwig at home during the summer holiday continues to be just one more area of conflict between Harry and the Dursleys. Hedwig could be considered an owl with a 'formal' personality, and also has a habit of staring/hooting "reproachfully", cuffing Harry with a wing when miffed (which is rather often), and being far more vocal than the average Snowy Owl. She also can act with hurt or anger due to Harry's sometimes innocently thoughtless actions or words. It is implied throughout the books that Hedwig can fully understand Harry and, apparently, to some extent vice versa. This implies in turn that she is a very intelligent owl. In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Hedwig is killed during Harry's escape from the Dursleys' by a stray killing curse.
