A Christmas miracle!

A tiny owl has been rescued from the Rockefella Christmas tree in New York.

The little bird was discovered dehydrated and hungry, but otherwise unharmed.

The bird has since been taken to Ravensbeard Wildlife Center in Saugerties, New York.

Rockefella is adult male Saw-whet owl, one of the world's tiniest owls.

He will be released back into the wild this weekend.

"Saddest Christmas tree"

The news comes after social media users criticised the appearance of the Rockefella Christmas tree.

The tree had been brought to Manhattan on Saturday from Oneonta, New York, in the central part of the state.

The tree is put in place and then decorated over some weeks before being lit for the public in early December.

However, some felt the look of the tree left a lot to be desired.

Rockefella were quick to fire back, commenting on Instagram: “Wow, you all must look great right after a two-day drive, huh? Just wait until I get my lights on! See you on December 2!”

We'll have to wait and see!
