I’d much rather see the owl than the sack of praying mantis eggs, or other bugs

The way he's nestled into the branches looks fake to me.

 

I can't imagine him staying in that tree through all it went through before they finally brought it home.

I can't imagine either!...I agree this does seem fake....plus how long is he going to stay as a guest?  Will he remain in the same spot through Christmas & New years?  Never has to eat or go?  Hmmmm I wouldn't want to be the one to have to remove it from the tree & my house!

I have cats, so I would've gently picked it up, and placed it outside, and let it fly away.

 

 

"Miricle"? No, not a miricle.

 

But it is a surprise.

Re: Christmas Tree Surprise

[ Edited ]

I saw a video about this on Facebook today.  It didn't go into all the detail that the article you posted did.  That is so interesting.  It would have really freaked me out.

 

Edited to say:  I just read the rest of the replies.  I don't understand how it stayed in the tree on the ride home either.  I always put the tree on the roof of my car.  How else would you get it home?  Why wouldn't the owl have just flown away?

I would have had a heart attack!  I am afraid of birds...in fact anything with feathers.  When I was a child my grandparents lived on a farm and you would have thought  the Old McDonald song was written about them.  They had every farm animal known to man.  A male turkey charged me and knocked me down.  I don't know if that is where the fear came from but I have panic attacks if around anything with feathers.  Thank goodness the family was ok with the owl and got help getting it out safely.  I have heard of snakes being coiled up in Christmas trees.  I guess it was warm in the house and the snake came out.

I agree..I believe the picture of an owl has been “added” to the picture of the tree.

I'm not an owl birdmama, but I know a fake owl when I see one Woman Happy

Looks like it was photoshopped into the pic.
