The birdwatchers of Central Park were buzzingâ€“a young red-tailed hawk had been spotted, would he stay? The bird they dubbed Pale Male not only stayed, he became one of New York Cityâ€™s most famous residents. Pale Male and his mate built their nest near the top of one of Fifth Avenueâ€™s swankiest apartment buildings. Nine years and 23 chicks later, Pale Maleâ€™s fame had grown so large that a CBS newsman named him Father of the Year! But Pale Male was less beloved by the residents of the building, and in 2004 the owners suddenly removed the nestâ€“setting off an international outcry on behalf of the birds.From the Hardcover edition.
