The Owls of Harry Potter by lyosha The Owls of Harry Potter by lyosha
Done for :iconmakani:, because she rocks my socks. Here we have, from left to right, the Malfoy's unnamed eagle owl, Hedwig, Pigwidgeon, Errol, and Hermes-- Percy's barn owl.

Hermes was a screech owl, not a barn owl.

Screech owls aren't native to the UK, and barn owls in the UK are often called 'screech owls'. So I'm content with my portrayal in this *8 year old* piece of art. LOL.

Well, neither are snowy owls, if you want to get technical.

Actually, yes, they are. They're native to the entire arctic circle, which includes the northern parts of Europe and Asia, not just North America. Snowy owls just haven't bred in the UK since the 70's due to human impact. If you want to get technical.

Good catch. I wasn't aware that snowy owls were still considered native to the UK.
But in any case, Neville's grandmother has a barn owl that is named as such (you see it in the first book, when it delivers his Remembrall). This suggests to me that J. K. Rowling is indeed calling barn owls "barn owls" and screech owls "screech owls."

Regardless, it's a moot point, considering-- as I pointed out-- this piece of artwork is old enough that it could hold a coherent conversation with you if it were a person. I'm not sure what your intent is at this point. I remain happy with my interpretation.
