The Legend of Pale Male

10/02/2011

This past week we have been reading the amazing true story of Pale Male: Citizen Hawk of New York City written by Janet Schulman and illustrated by Meilo So.

Since 1991 this light-colored red-tailed hawk has made his home on a ledge of a 5th Avenue apartment block.  It is heart-warming to know that some people go to great effort to protect this endangered species.  

There is a documentary made about this story. You can find out more about The Legend of Pale Male from the following website: http://www.thelegendofpalemale.com/
