Hedwig Harry Potter's owl Hedwig is a Snowy Owl. She's a female but, in the movie, the actors playing her are males. You can tell that the owl playing Hedwig in the photo is really a male because his plumage is so white--female Snowy Owls have dark markings. Females are also bigger and heavier, and so would be a little harder for human actors to handle. Claws that can kill a large duck through thick feathers can be pretty hard on human arms, too, even when the owl is just trying to balance itself.
