Tiny Owl "Rocky" Found in NYC Christmas Tree Released

Rocky Owl

Have you heard about the tiny owl that was found in the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree this year? Aptly nicknamed "Rocky," she's emerged as a symbol of resilience after being released back into the wild this week. The Northern saw-whet owl was found in the tree as a crew was preparing to raise the tree into place on the plaza, and soon after, was transported to a wildlife rescue for rehabilitation. Though the owl was dehydrated and quite hungry after spending a few days in the tree during its transport, the wildlife rescue team says she's doing very well now. Watch the video of her release here!
