Pale Male

Pale Male (hatched 1990) is a well known New York City Red-tailed Hawk who has made his home since the early 1990s near Central Park. Birdwatcher and author Marie Winn gave him his name because of the unusually light coloring of his head. He is one of the first Red-tailed Hawks known to have nested on a building rather than in a tree and is famous for establishing a dynasty of urban-dwelling Red-tailed Hawks. Each spring birders set up telescopes at the Model Boat Pond to observe his nest and chicks at 927 Fifth Avenue.

Famous quotes containing the words male and/or pale:

    ... censorship often boils down to some male judges getting to read a lot of dirty books—with one hand.
    Robin Morgan (b. 1941)

    Horse, you flame thrower,
    you shark-mouthed man,
    you laughter at the end of poems,
    you brown furry locomotive
    whipping the snow, I am
    a pale shadow beside you.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
