Screech Owls are typical owls (Strigidae) belonging to the genus Megascops. Twenty-one living species are known at present, but new ones are frequently recognized and unknown ones are still being discovered on a regular basis, especially in the Andes.[1]

Screech Owl are one of several species of owls sold at Eeylops Owl Emporium. One can purchase it for 15 Galleons.[2]

On 24 June, 1995, one of these owls delivered Hermione Granger her morning's copy of the Daily Prophet. This was "as usual," so it is possible that this paper was always delivered to her by one of these birds,[3] though on 2 September of that year at the start of the new school year, the paper was delivered to her by a Barn Owl instead.[4] Just a bit later in the year, however, she had another copy delivered to her by a Screech Owl.[5]

During the summer holidays of that year, another of these owls sent Harry Potter an official letter from Mafalda Hopkirk telling him that he had been expelled from Hogwarts and that Ministry representatives were coming to destroy his wand.[6]Aodin Mirlor
