Good episode? Give it some love!
There's been another development in the story regarding New York's Rockefeller Center Christmas tree "sparse" appearance, which some had called an appropriate tribute to a year to forget.
The tree has been roundly mocked on line, but there's a post-script.
A tiny owl has been found clinging to the tree - after it survived the three day road trip to New York.
The stowaway - which has been named Rockefeller - was taken to the vet for a check-up and some X-rays, but is in great condition considering his adventure.
It is now recovering at a wildlife refuge where it has been given fluids and "all the mice he will eat".
The director of the wildlife centre says he's pensive and cautious but very alert, bright-eyed and she says the cuteness factor is just off the charts.
Saw-whet owl are the smallest owls in the US north-east, and grow to no more than 17-21 centimeters tall.
Once Rockefeller has a clean bill of health, he will be released back into the wild.
