NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Workers moving the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree got a little surprise.
They found an owl tucked away in the branches.
One of the workers got it out and put it in a box.
It's now at the Ravensbeard Wildlife Center in Saugerties.
Staffers identified it as a saw-whet owl, the smallest owl in the northeast.
It will be cared for by workers there for a while and will eventually be released back into the wild.
