Guess Why a Snowy Owl Is On a Rooftop in Somerville

Some say Harry Potter is sending a message; others deem it a mysterious omen. Or maybe it's just looking for food.


Ever since , some have shared thoughts on Facebook about why the owl came to town.

Some say it's Hedwig, Harry Potter's messenger owl, bringing a note to a magical resident.

Meanwhile, Somerville's augurs have been taking the auspices; it's presence must be an omen.

Or maybe the bird is just looking for some good Brazilian food.

What do you think?

It's a bit unusual. Has anyone seen a snowy owl in Somerville before?

Perhaps someone decided that they were going to do a live Christmas display to one-up the inflatable snowmen and one of the "characters" escaped. Everyone should be on the look-out for a small deer with a painted nose. Actually, now that I think about it--that's pretty much the only explanation.

I hear she was bringing a letter from Hogwarts' study abroad program recruiters.
