Pale Male: Citizen Hawk of New York City
Author: Janet Schulman
Illustrator: Meilo So
Pale Male refers to the red-tailed hawk which soared over Central Park and came to be recognized as “citizen hawk” of New York city. Interestingly, this extraordinary bird and his mate had a penchant for high rise apartments for their nests. Pale Male’s legacy still lives on in New York City, and this book’s creative illustrations capture the story of the hawk.
