Hedwig (pre July 1991 - 27 July 1997) was a female snowy owl that belonged to Harry Potter.

She was given to Harry by Rubeus Hagrid as a gift for the former's eleventh birthday, during a trip to Diagon Alley to get supplies for Harry's first year at Hogwarts in July 1991.

Hedwig went with Harry to Hogwarts and along with the school's other owls, would deliver post to Harry and the other students.

Tragically in July 1997 during the Battle of the Seven Potters, Hedwig was killed after being struck by The Killing Curse by a Death Eater that was pursuing Harry and Hagrid, which deeply saddened Harry.
