Part II
Magical Creature Lesson

This week we will discuss the snidget. The snidget is a small bird. It has a spherical

shape and can fly with great speed and agility. It has beautiful golden feathers with red

jewel like eyes.

It is because of these qualities that is was highly sought after and hunted. They were

hunted for their feathers as well as Quidditch. They were a very central part to the game

until later on the golden snitch came to replace it. Nearing extinction the species was

protected; many reserves exist across the world.
