Rocky the stowaway owl is back in the wild

The tiny Saw-whet owl was named Rockefeller after it was found by a worker setting up the holiday tree at Manhattan’s Rockefeller Center. The owl was apparently trapped in the 71-foot-tall (22-meter-tall) Norway spruce when it was cut down 170 miles (275 kilometers) north, in upstate New York on Nov. 12.

The female owl, initially thought to be male, was uninjured but hadn't eaten for at least three days when she was discovered and sent to Ravensbeard Wildlife Center in the Hudson Valley town of Saugerties. There, a rehabilitator nursed her back to

healthfor a week with plenty of mice before Rocky was cleared to continue her migratory journey south.On Tuesday evening, rehabilitator Ellen Kalish held the winsome raptor aloft in a field against a backdrop of rounded mountains. In a video posted on Ravensbeard's headtopics.com

Fly free little one. Thanks for letting us know you. I love owls THIS IS JUST A GREAT STORY IT WARMS THE HEART AT A TIME WHEN WE ALL NEED SOMETHING UPLIFTING I’ll take this happy ending on thanksgiving day! Hope you enjoyed the city, rocky... Now that’s something we can all be thankful for. this should be a disney movie

God bless the little one. This is the most beautiful moment of 2020. Be safe, little Rocky!♥️🦉♥️ Rocky is so beautiful. What a treasure... I hope it was released into the same forest he came out of. I thought it was Steve Bannon releasing the owl after election results! ahaubert_SCI mariliacz Se foi! God is mighty, i only hope the forest houses more mates than pre-daters

Whoever sees this, please consider donating to my dear friend Nick. He was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in August and received a life-saving bone marrow transplant today. A single dollar donation will go a LONG way! God bless you all. 🙏 So beautiful Yay I'm happy that she's been set free back to the open world of nature. 🦉

Hopefully they put this little guy back where the tree came from?!!! Otherwise he will be alone and lost! They like moving as much as we do=Grrr. Has no nest or territory. ❤️ A better story had it not ever happened Go Rocky may u have a wonderful life!!!🦉🦉🦉🦉🦉🦉🦉🦉🦉🦉🦉🦉🦉🦉 👋😭 Live long and prosper little Rocky

I’m glad Rocky survived and has been released. Love the video, but the headline describing him as a stowaway should be revised. Hey maybe we can quit cutting down giant trees to drag to NYC and DC now that's it the 21st Century. How about growing trees ON SITE and decorating them yearly instead? Kinda gross how we're all 'aweee it's such a cute little stowawayyy TEE-HEE-HE'... As opposed to we carelessly cut down and killed its fucking home so we could put lights on it for a week and then throw it away. It wasn't a stowaway. We stole its fucking home.

Congratulations to the recovery of American souls. Rocky, come back! 😂♥️ usually owls are large and freaky looking I think it just snatched my cat! They need to release that sick looking tree back into the wild. Jane Fonda called the COVID-19 pandemic 'God's gift to the Left.' that tells the opportunism of the Democratic Party. Do they care about the 200K+ Americans, or do they consider these unfortunate victims to be props to use in the anti-Trump drama they subject us to day after day?
