I'm going to have to watch the movie again apparently. I did think you might be referring to that 4-note motif for Sirius/the Grim. I didn't count it because I don't feel it's developed enough to really be considered a theme.

> Pettigrew's Theme is played on the harpsichord. It contains nine notes,

> The Sirius/Grim theme contains four notes. It doesn't appear on album much

> The immediate start to that same track hints at the theme, as well. It is
> heard in the film as Harry and Mr. Weasley discuss Sirius Black and when
> Sirius steps out from behind the door in the Shrieking Shack.

> That's not true. It appears again when Harry and Hermione fly on Buckbeak
> to save Sirius from the tower at the end of the film. There is also a very
> brief hint to it in the film after Harry and Hermione go back in time.
> Hermione realizes that Dumbledore wants them to save Buckbeak too, and
> Buckbeak's Theme is reprised very lightly and briefly.

> It's just the main theme of the score, probably intented to represent the

> Hedwig's Theme appears in "Lumos", "Secrets of the
> Castle", "Mischief Managed", and "A Window to the
> Past". There's the scene in which the season changes to winter, which
