Yes, I'm very well aware that he was in hiding, but something occurred to me while listening.
When Ron Weasley snatched up Pigwidgeon at the Owlery in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and threw him out the window to deliver Harry's letter, it made me why the Ministry never tried something like this.
Couldn't they have used an owl with a tracking spell to search him out?
I'm sure that some wizard (Snape, for example) could have magicked some parchment since it's simple enough to assume that Harry and Sirius would be corresponding.
Yes, I realize that the story would not have been nearly as good if any of those scenarios had played out, but I seriously thought about this most of the day.
Has this occurred to any of you? If this has been addressed anywhere (and I'm sure it has), how was the idea dismissed? I'm interested in reading your thoughts.
