The Saw Owl is found tired and hungry in the branches of the Great Norway Spruce in the famous New York landmark
It wasn’t a partridge in a pear tree, but the worker who helped create the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center found a surprise during the holiday – a little owl among the huge branches, said Eileen Kalisch, director and founder of the Ravensbird Wildlife Center in Sugartes, New York, where the bird was transported The little bird, now called the Rockefeller, was discovered on Monday, dehydrated and hungry, but unharmed.

Kalisch said the bird was a male sharpened saw owl, one of the smaller owls said the plan was to re-release it into the wild this weekend The tree, which is 75 feet (23 meters) of Norwegian greenery and weighs 11 tons, was brought to Manhattan on Saturday from Ununta, New York, in the central part of the state The tree is held in place and then decorated over a period of a few weeks before being lit to the public in early December.
The owl’s discovery may help spruce up the tree after Charlie Brown’s bare lower branches and dangling needles made comparisons to the tree in a special Peanut Christmas show, A Charlie Brown Christmas
The tree’s unfortunate condition was also seen as a metaphor for 2020 but the Rockefeller Center pulled back on criticism of the tree’s appearance, tweeting Wednesday: “Wow, you gotta look great after two days of driving, right? Just wait for the lights to turn on. See you on December 2! ”
AB Kelly, the managing director of the real estate company that owns the Rockefeller Center, said the tree was suffering from the natural effects of moving it 200 miles (300 kilometers), and it looked exactly like trees in previous years upon arrival and told the New York Times: It is beautiful and full. “
She wasn’t the only one. Kalish said the owl was taken to a vet on Wednesday and got a clean bill of health. He had a buffet of all-you-can-eat mice, so he’s ready to go
