We'll be studyin' Augureys next, bu' I'll need a permission slip signed by yer Head o' House so yeh can be included. Why? Well, #1 it's a very shy creature. If anyone goofs off, the bird might fly away or hide in it's nest. The other reason is that their cry has been told ter foresee death. Now, I want all of yeh to know that that is not true at all, but Professor Kettleburn told me that some of yeh might panic anyways. For those reasons, I would like a signature from yer Head of House by this Friday saying that you can behave maturely.
