Offers the true story about a red-tailed hawk, named Pale Male, who made his home on a ledge outside one of New York City's ritziest apartment buildings, raised 23 chicks over the course of nine years, and earned world fame after a series of events involving an unpopular eviction by the building's human residents.

The birdwatchers of Central Park were buzzing-a young red-tailed hawk had been spotted, would he stay? The bird they dubbed Pale Male not only stayed, he became one of New York City's most famous residents. Pale Male and his mate built their nest near the top of one of Fifth Avenue's swankiest apartment buildings. Nine years and 23 chicks later, Pale Male's fame had grown so large that a CBS newsman named him Father of the Year! But Pale Male was less beloved by the residents of the building, and in 2004 the owners suddenly removed the nest-setting off an international outcry on behalf of the birds.
