This week grade 1-4 students learned about a hawk that lives in New York City. Pale Male: Citizen Hawk of New York City written by Janet Schulman and illustrated by Meilo So, is the astonishing true story of a red tailed hawk that has lived in New York since 1991. We learned how, when his nest was torn down, many people protested and since then his home on a building on Fifth Avenue has been undisturbed.
We then watched the trailer of the documentary made about his life so far and you can watch it here:
You can also keep up to date with what is happening in his nest from this site, palemale.com.
