The bird (Saw-whet owl) was discovered by a worker helping transport a 75-foot (23-meter) tree from Oneonta, New York to New York City.
A small owl, named Rockefeller, was discovered on Monday and taken to the Ravensbeard Wildlife Center (RWC) in Sogati’s, New York.
Rockefeller was dehydrated and hungry, but otherwise not injured, said RWC director and founder Ellen Kalish.
Ms. Kalish said the bird is an adult northern saw-whet owl and one of the smallest owls. She added that there are about 2 million species inhabiting the United States.
Rockefeller was taken to a veterinarian on Wednesday to get a clean health bill. The plan is to release him to the wild this weekend.
“He had an all-you-can-eat rat buffet, so he’s ready to go,” Kalish said.
Every year, trees are erected outside the Rockefeller Center and decorated for Christmas.
But this year’s efforts have been roundly ridiculed on social media for their “sparse” appearance and hanging branches.
“Wow, you need to look good right after the two-day drive. Wait until the lights come on! See you on December 2nd!” Rockefeller Center tweeted in response to the jib. Did.
The discovery of owls may serve as some positive news for the Christmas tree, which is described as a metaphor for 2020.
