The animal kingdom is amazing and it is just sad that we humans are not taking care of them properly.
People from all over the world visit New York City’s famous Rockefeller Christmas Tree each year for Christmas, but sometimes, it is not a good thing to do.
This year, it turned out that animals travel too in order to witness the amazing tree.
This year, the animal that we are talking about is a baby owl.
Rockefeller, the owl, traveled almost 200 miles to New York City after hitching a ride on a truck that was carrying the massive tree.
A tree is brought to the Rockefeller Center each year for Christmas.
The tree was transported to New York City from Oneonta.
Upon its arrival at the building, which is located in Manhattan, Rockefeller, the owl, was found nestled in the branches of the tree.
After the discovery of the baby owl, the tree transportation company contacted Ravensbeard Wildlife Center to ask if they took in owls for rehabilitation.
The center said that they did take in owls.
Good news, it was rescued!
The Ravensbeard Wildlife Center shared the amazing news on Facebook on November 17, 2020.
The announcement went viral right away, considering the adorable little owl that was along with the images that they posted.
In the post that they made, they talked about how they were informed about the owl in the Christmas tree.
The post’s caption said:
Ravensbeard is excited to share a rare Holiday story with you. Yesterday morning, I received a phone call from someone who asked if we take in owls for rehabilitation. I replied, “yes we do,” there was silence for a moment and she said “OK, I’ll call back when my husband comes home, he’s got the baby owl in a box tucked in for the long ride. She lived about an hour south so we met in the middle to do the transfer. Once secured, I peaked in the box and saw this little face looking up at me. He/she was a little Saw-whet owl, the smallest owls we have in the northeast. All baby owls are born in the spring so the idea that there was a baby owl in November didn’t make sense.
The center gave the owl some fluids and gave him some mice, which will help the little one become healthy and have good nutrients for proper growth.
According to reports, it had been 3 days since Rockefeller, the owl, had eaten or drink anything.
Talking about the owl that was rescued by the Ravensbeard Wildlife Center, they said that Rockefeller was in good condition.
They said that Rockefeller will be released back into the wild after a vet gives them the green light.
Such a good thing to hear in times like these!
