30 Day Harry Potter Challenge. Day 29 - Favorite Portrait: Ariana. The chapter picture was simple yet pretty and you could just see the innocence captured in her features. And when you know the whole story, it tugs at your heartstrings even more, knowing she died at a young age, perhaps by the hand of one of her brothers. Plus her portrait led to the DA room of requirement to get into the castle.
Pigwidgeon is a Eurasian (Common) Scops Owl. This owl, even tinier than a Little Owl and more closely related to the Screech Owls of America, has "ear tufts"--feathers that stick up on the head and look like ears. The owl illustration for this chapter clearly shows those feather tufts.
