Can this be?!? Is it true?!?! Are all of our owls coming?!?
Yahoo reports there has been a mass of SNOWY owls flying in to the “lower 48 states” this winter! Is it just me, or does the opening line of this article sound an awful lot like a sentence or two from Harry Potter:
“Bird enthusiasts are reporting a rising number of snowy owls from the arctic are winging into the lower 48 states this winter in a mass southern migration that a leading owl researcher calls ‘unbelievable’” (Zuckerman, Laura).
How cool. I guess we’re all finally getting our owls! : ) This story makes me as giddy as a first year seeing Hogwarts for the first time. Actually, the story itself is pretty dull and offers all sorts of legitimate, scientific explanations, but the Harry Potter connection is exciting. And at the end, they still say it’s a mystery. So I say screw the science! I just has to share it with all of you!
And don’t think it passed my notice that all these owls are a part of Hedwig’s family tree. = D That just makes it even more special.

I wonder if something awesome has happened in the wizarding world that every witch and wizard is telling all the other witches and wizards about. It’s so fun to think about magical things like that in mundane, and largely scientific, news reports. : )
Man I love Harry Potter.
