Harry buys Hedwig from Eeylops Owl Emporium on his first visit to Diagon Alley(HPPS 5), and brings her back to Privet Drive with him before taking her to Hogwarts in HPPS 6. She brings him his first letter in HPPS 8, from Hagrid.

At the beginning of Harry Potter And The Chamber of Secrets, Hedwig is locked in her cage at Number four, Privet Drive, and as a result she often hoots noisily and annoys the Dursleys.

At the beginning of Harry Potter And The Prisoner of Azkaban, Hedwig is with Harry at the Dursleys' house, though she is allowed out to fly around at night.

In HPGOF 2, Hedwig is off hunting when Harry wakes up with his scar hurting and writes a letter to Sirius Black.
