The Paper Bird Charm (unknown incantation) is a charm used to animate a paper bird and make it fly like a real bird


In third year, Draco Malfoy used this charm during Severus Snape's Defence Against the Dark Arts classes on werewolves, in which he sent a flying paper bird to Harry Potter which contained a cruel and crude animated drawing of him being struck by lightning whilst playing Quidditch.[1]


In fifth year, Padma Patil performed this charm in the beginning of Umbridge's first class, but the bird was magically burned and destroyed by the new mean-spirited Defence Against the Dark Arts Professor.[2]
