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!
