He went without food and water for 3 days while wrapped in the tree - but is doing well now.

They've called him Rockefeller! He's cuteness overload. There are pics of him swaddled in OP link. Is he a baby?

I hope they drive him back where he came from and set him free. He probably has an owl family there that are missing him.

According to local NYC news he was taken to a wildlife center upstate and is recovering well. No word on further plans.

Rockefeller is doing very well and will be released on Saturday.
Most owls are solitary creatures so he can be released here in the Hudson Valley as there is no need to reunite with family members.

All the press reports I've here in New York have described him as a baby.
BTW, the owl population in Central Park has surged significantly the past couple of years because of a big increase in rodents. A mice and rats smorgasbord for owls.

Three days without mice or drink! Poor thing must've been miserable and scared. If I were him, I'd sue the Rockefellers.
Why can't lawyers take up cases on his behalf and use the money for owl welfare?

R41, and you think a giant plastic tree is better for the environment? If the donor wants, NBC replaces the tree with a new one to grow

Natural trees are better. You can mulch it. The artificial one will end up in the ocean to poison sealife.

The Rockefeller Tree is indeed mulched and recycled and as mentioned above the owners are offered a young replacement at no cost. This year's tree owner said the tree was in his front yard and had grown so large it was interfering with his ability to care for his lawn. He took the offer of a replacement.

Quick, call the Bavarian glass blowers and order a million small owl Christmas ornaments, possibly with scarves, or maybe without? Package them as Rockefeller and have them out by Dec. 2 for the tree lighting ceremony. We'll also donate 1,000 for the tree to be able to market them as the “official “ ornament and make a killing!

R70 If there is a city bird for NYC it is most likely Pale Male, the Red Tailed Hawk who chose to be posh and nest on a building on 5th Ave. overlooking Central Park. There was international outcry when his nest was dismantled by the high rise building where he lived and even Mary Tyler Moore, a resident of the building and a staunch animal rights advocate, protested and an agreement was made to allow the nest to return. There have been three children’s books written about him and he may in fact still be living into his 30s, though some presume he may have died and a hawk with similar marking took his place in 2015.
I am a little unclear about if Rockefeller actually made it to NYC or if he was discovered in transit?

Rocky is the mascot of 2020. That's why he showed up at Rockefeller Center in a Christmas tree in the capital of the world. He represents death, change and wisdom. That he looks so cross in orange is a plus.
