We’ve embarked on a mini-marathon of Harry Potter movies as we wait for the sixth movie to be released. Last night we rewatched the 4th movie, and I wished the director would have found a spot for Pigwigeon, Ron’s owl. J.K Rowlings describes Harry’s first impression of Pig as a “small, gray, feathery tennis ball” and later as “small enough to fit into the palm of his hand.” I was happy to find a great website about the owls of Harry Potter, maintained by owl expert, Laura Erickson. According to her, Pigwideon is a Eurasian Scops Owl, related to the Eastern Screech of North America. While Pig is a small character, in more ways than one, he’s got the personality for a movie role. Let’s hope he shows up in the next movie.
