Pale Male Returns Home

As an example that protesting can work, the co-op board of a New York building on Fifth Avenue have given in and allowed Pale Male (see earlier post) and his mate, Lola, to return to the building. The pair has nested on the building since 1993 and raised 23 babies were evicted because residents of the building complained that the hawks were a health and safety risk. After public protest, a new nest was constructed on the building, and the New York Audubon Society and reported that the pair returned yesterday, and Pale was spotted carrying sticks to the nest! We have such a limited supply of nature left in our cities; it’s nice to see some of it being protected.
