Friday, November 27, 2020. New York City – As I reported before, on Monday, November 16, 2020, a small owl was found inside of this year’s Rockefeller Christmas tree. The owl was given to the Ravensbeard Wildlife Center in Saugerties, New York.

These are updates from the Ravensbeard Wildlife Center.

On Friday, November 20, 2020, at 12:58 PM, the Ravensbeard Wildlife Center said on Facebook, “Rockefeller, the saw-whet owl would like to thank everyone for their kindness and generosity and let you all know that he is feeling much better! His x-rays came back all clear. We will keep him here with us for a few more days while we monitor his health and get him back up to a proper weight. We are all grateful for the support from everyone across the country and beyond, and are excited to provide more updates soon as to when Rockefeller will be released. In the meantime, all donations are so appreciated – both for Rockefeller and all his friends! Ravensbeard is in desperate need of a permanent home, where we can continue to help injured and orphaned birds like Rockefeller for years to come.”

He has been moved to an outdoor location so that he can acclimate to the weather. Today we are scouting locations and determining the best timing for his release, which will likely be tomorrow or Monday. We’ll be sure to provide you all with an update once we have it. We are a small non-profit, and your support helps us to be able to continue our work making sure birds like Rockefeller are properly cared for before their return to the wild. Rockefeller and the rest of the birds here at Ravensbeard thank you for all the support!”

Thank you for your continued support over the past few days, it has been so wonderful to read all of your messages & comments! We’ve been working hard to ensure that Rockefeller is well taken care of. We always consult with experts & avian veterinarians before the release of a bird, to ensure they have the best chance of reentering the wild. That’s what we’ve been up to these past few days. We will continue to keep you posted, as we know we all want the best for little Rocky.”

On Tuesday, November 24, 2020, at 2:08 PM, the Ravensbeard Wildlife Center said on Facebook, “We have exciting new to share! Rockefeller has been well cared for, and she has been cleared by specialists for take off (yes, we determined Rocky is a girl!) Rocky will continue on her migratory journey south today at dusk. The release will happen at sunset so that she can find safe cover by nightfall. We have found just the right quiet cluster of conifers to give her the safety she needs. We can’t wait to share the footage with everyone, so we can all celebrate Rocky’s return to nature together.”
