Owl Found Inside Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree
RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree surprised some folks when it was revealed earlier this week. Let's say it just didn't have the look.

He was taken to a nearby wildlife center. The owl has been named Rockefeller. It's MORNING EDITION.
