Hedwig, the Snowy Owl
I’m not sure why, but “Hedwig” just sounds like a good owl name…and it doesn’t seem to work well with other animals (Hedwig the Monkey? Hedwig the Manatee? Hedwig the Giraffe?…actually, I could see a giraffe with that name…). Hedwig is a snowy owl at the Bronx Zoo (notice the out-of-focus vertical cage bars in the photo above), and while he didn’t see to want to keep his eyes open for a photo, he was still a beautiful owl.
