The raptor has returned to its habitat
The family told CNN that the animal had probably been nestled in the Christmas tree for almost a week. The day after this curious encounter, the Newmans contacted the Chattahoochee center, which specializes in preserving wildlife.
An employee traveled on Saturday to identify the bird. It was a Eurasian Screech Owl, a small nocturnal raptor widespread in the state of Georgia. The specialist also left them instructions so that he can leave by himself. It was not until Sunday, at nightfall, that the owl finally escaped from the house to return to its natural habitat.
