The Barn Owl (binomial name Tyto alba) is the most widely distributed species of owl, and one of the most widespread of all birds. It is also referred to as Common Barn Owl, to distinguish it from other species in the barn-owl family Tytonidae.[1]

Barn Owl is one of several species of owls sold at Eeylops Owl Emporium. One can purchase it for 10 Galleons.[2]

Augusta Longbottom owned a barn owl, which she used to send her grandson Neville a Remembrall in 1991,[3] and a Howler in 1994,[4] though by the start of the 1994-1995 school year, she was using a Tawny Owl instead.[5] At least four barn owls were amongst the owls that delivered hate mail to Hermione Granger in February 1995 following the publication of the article "Harry Potter's Secret Heartache" in Witch Weekly.[6]

During the summer holidays of 1995, Harry Potter received a letter from Arthur Weasley telling him that Albus Dumbledore was trying to sort things out with the British Ministry of Magic regarding his usage of underage magic and to not do any more magic or leave 4 Privet Drive.[7]

On 2 September of that year, Hermione received her copy of the morning's Daily Prophet from a Barn Owl.[8]
