Listen Now: Owl Bobblehead
The little owl found in a famous Christmas tree is becoming a Bobblehead.
The Rockefeller Christmas tree draws visitors worldwide, is featured in movies, and, occasionally, is home to wildlife. That was the case this year when the tree was cut down and brought to New York City to be set up.
One of the men working on the team noticed a small owl among the branches, recovered it and brought it to the Ravensbeard Wildlife Center. The bird, now named Rockefeller, quickly went viral, catching the attention of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum. They crated a Bobble of the little guy and are selling it for $25. Five dollars from every sale will go to Ravensbeard who cared for the pint-sized celebrity.
As for the real baby bird, the wildlife center says after a few days of not eating or drinking, he began to recover. The owl, about the size of a soda can, is technically an adult.
He is now recovered and making a new tree home on the grounds of Ravensbeard—one that won’t be chopped down.
