Tiny owl hitched a ride on the Rockefeller Christmas tree

It wasn’t quite a partridge in a pear tree, but a worker helping set up Rockefeller Center’s Christmas tree found a holiday surprise – a tiny owl among the massive branches.

The little bird, now named what else but Rockefeller, was discovered on Monday, dehydrated and hungry, but otherwise unharmed, said Ellen Kalish, director and founder of the Ravensbeard Wildlife Center in Saugerties, New York, where the bird was taken.

Rockefeller was discovered during tree transport, according to Ravensbeard Wildlife Center. The wife of an employee for the company that gets the tree to Manhattan called the center to report a "baby owl" in need of help.

When he's ready to fly again, Rockefeller will be released on the grounds of Ravensbeard, the center said, 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.

Yes. This is why I didn't put it in the OP.
