The Translation of 'Owl' in Harry Potter

 

Scops Owl

 

(For the romanisation of Chinese and Japanese, see Transliteration. To understand the writing systems of CJV, see Writing Systems.)

 

When Harry slips out to Hogsmeade (Book 3 'Snape's Grudge'), Ron obligingly pretends to check out the owls in the post office. One species mentioned is a 'tiny little scops owl'. The Eurasian or Common Scops Owl is officially known as Otus scops. This and several other types of Scops owl are found in the Orient.
