Snowy Owl (binomial name Bubo scandiacus) is a large owl of the typical owl family Strigidae. It is very recognisable due to its white feathers, yellow eyes and black beak. It is one of the largest species of owl and in North America is on average the heaviest owl species.[1]

Snowy Owl is one of several species available at Eeylops Owl Emporium on Diagon Alley. In 1991 Rubeus Hagrid bought one for Harry Potter's birthday.[2]

Behind the scenes

  • Whilst every other owl species' price sold at Eeylops Owl Emporium is known, there is no information how much Snowy Owls cost.[3] Snowy Owls are not native birds in Great Britain and no Snowy Owls are other than Hedwig are seen within the Harry Potter series, suggesting that it may be unusual for Eeylops to have had one to sell.
  • Despite Hedwig being established as a female, she is always portrayed by male Snowy Owls in the films, owing to their more predominantly white plumage.
