PHOTO #2 – NOV. 20/2020 – A TINY OWL HAS BROUGHT SOME JOY TO NEW YORK CITY & CANADA

It’s like one of those Disney animations when a little owl travels to Rockefeller Center inside a giant Christmas tree. The workers, who’d be setting up the 75-foot-tall spruce discovered the traveler.Birds sometimes find their way into the tree on its way to New York., so each branch is always inspected before the tree is decorated. The Ravensbeard Wildlife Centre said the little one is actually an adult. They fittingly named the Northern saw-whet owl “Rockefeller”, one of the smallest in North America.  Ravensbeard workers estimated the little guy hadn’t eaten for about three days as the giant tree made its way from Oneonta, New York to Manhattan. They served him up all the mice he could eat, along with plenty of fluids. Some day soon he’ll be released. ‘Rockefeller’ made CBC’s National News last night, and he’s all over the media. It’s a feel-good story at a time when we really need one.  Happy Holiday, Rockefeller Center! <PHOTOS – Ravensbeard Wildlife Center>
