A tiny owl hitched a ride on the Rockefeller Christmas tree

The reaction to the Rockefeller Christmas tree’s reveal this week wasless than enthusiastic. But its scrawny exterior hid a very small, very cute winged stowaway.

A petite Saw-whet owl that had hitched a ride inside the soon-to-be Christmas tree when it was cut down in Oneonta, 纽约, 本星期.
The owl, 绰号 “Rockefeller,” is recovering at a wildlife facility about two hours from 30 岩.
Rockefeller was discovered during tree transport, 根据 Ravensbeard Wildlife Center. The wife of an employee for the company that gets the tree to Manhattan called the center to report ababy owlin need of help.
    The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree arrives at Rockefeller Plaza and is craned into place on November 14, 2020 在纽约市.

    But Rockefeller is no baby. Saw-whet owls are the smallest species of owl in the regionabout the size of a soda can, 根据 Cornell University’s Lab of Ornithology.
    Losing his home he was in it was relatively distressing for Rockefeller, so since arriving at Ravensbeard on Tuesday, he’s been gorging on mice and catching up on some much-needed R&[R.
    So far so good,” 中心 在脸书上. “His eyes are bright and seems relatively in good condition with all he’s been through.
      When he’s ready to fly again, Rockefeller will be released on the grounds of Ravensbeard, 中心说, where he’ll have acres of trees in which to make a new home. Saw-whet owls are migratory, which makes them quite capable of adapting to new places.
      As for the withered tree, it still needs to be lit, decorated and spruced up before its debut on December 2, Rockefeller Center 说过. And if it was good enough for the bird, it should make a fine Christmas tree, 太.
