Dumbledore = Phoenix, duh
Harry = Snowy Owl
then it gets more difficult
Snape = Raven? some sort of corvid.
Ron = A robin! Why didn't this occur to me before?
Hermione = possibly a different corvid? something, of course, that connotes intelligence, but not an owl. Bluejay, although should be british-native bird
Luna = dove
research english birds!
This would be so much easier if I *liked* birds. Birds are weird.
So, of COURSE, there's the perfect book for my needs. Too bad it's out of print and would be an import and at LEAST $25.
British Birds: Their Folklore, Names, and Literature. Hey, who wants to get me a book???
