Pale Male: Citizen Hawk of New York City
by Janet Schulman
Texas Bluebonnet Award NomineeSM
Kids' Wings Award for Outstanding Literature

"They were true-blue New Yorkers--tough, resourceful and determined to make it in the city."

Central Park is an oasis in the middle of one of the largest cities in the world. It is filled with flowers and lakes, trees and meadows, and is populated with butterflies, frogs, songbirds, squirrels, and even an occasional coyote and fox. What could possibly make Central Park more perfect? A red-tailed hawk!

People in the middle of New York City were surprised to see a young red-tailed hawk circling over Central Park. The hawk saw just what he wanted in the park below. Was it the people? No. Was it the little lakes? No. Was it the walkways and flowers? No. Was it lunch? Yes! But, what WAS lunch for a red-tailed hawk?

The hawk met a beautiful female red-tailed hawk. Together they entertained birdwatchers with an aerial ballet. Then, when they tried to build their first nest, their problems began.

What a beautifully-told story of beauty, perseverance, and respect for nature!
