I bet you recently had a break up where your ex told you that you have a big head? I think your head was so big the owl couldn't avoid it.
Owls have better eyesight than humans when it's dark. Maybe it was saving you from something out there :)
It did not say Hedwig was a 'snowy barn owl', the reason being a SNOWY owl is one species and a BARN owl is another - they are separate and do not interbreed. Much more entertaining is the fact snowy owls only come in two colours, white (male) and grey (female). This of course means that the owls used to portray Hedwig, a female, in the films are all male. On a different note, the wingspan of a barn owl is a good meter, so either you have freaking massive windows, it wasn't a barn owl, or at the very least it was not a 'giant barn owl', but rather an awfully small one...
Unlucky doesn't even come close to describe the incident. Sorry for you OP ... I hope you or the owl weren't hurt too badly
It must have been Pig! He was on his way to Hogwarts that's all! I'm sure Ron will send an apology letter soon. By owl.
