This little owl made a home in a family's indoor Christmas tree – then refused to move out, despite their best efforts (Picture: Billy Newman) A family got the shock of their life after discovering a real-life owl had made a home in their indoor Christmas tree. Kate Newman, from Atlanta, was bemused when her 10 year-old daughter India told her one of the tree ornaments was scaring her, and went to investigate. She was stunned to discover the 'ornament' was actually an eastern screech owl – and that the little bird was very happy with its cozy, sheltered home. Kate told CNN: 'She comes very dramatically into the dining room and goes, "Mama, that ornament scared me," 'Then she bursts into tears.' Kate is such an owl lover, and even bought some owl ornaments to decorate her family's tree.

She initially mistook the feathered visitor for one of those – until it suddenly turned its head and stared at her. Advertisement Kate's family bought the tree just after Thanksgiving, and suspect the owl had been living in it before they brought it indoors. The Newmans left the doors and windows of their home open overnight in a bid to give the owl a chance to escape. But it stayed put, with the Newmans then forced to call a wildlife expert. She coaxed the owl out of the tree, and put it in a crate with some chicken to help the bird regain its strength. The Newmans were then told to leave the crate opened in a darkened room with a means for the owl to get out of the house. They complied, with the nocturnal bird finally free. Kate is convinced the owl did not fly too far, and says she can still hear it hooting at night.
