NEW YORK — The biggest surprise wasn't found under New York City's famous Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, it was actually found inside the massive holiday favorite.
A small Saw-whet owl was found hiding among the branches of the 30 Rock tree as it was being moved into place Wednesday, WFLA reports.
The owl was found by an employee who works for the company that transported the 75-foot-tall Norway spruce from upstate New York to Manhattan. The employee brought the owl home and called the Ravensbeard Wildlife Center.
While it appears small, experts at Ravensbeard say the owl is not a baby since they're born in the spring and summer.
The owl was, of course, named "Rockefeller" after where it was found. Once it returns to health, the owl will be returned to the wild.
