Pale Male

Excuse all the bird posts (warning: there will be more) but I just found this shot in my archives. When I compared the markings, I found that this was PaleMale, the homeless refugee hawk from 5th avenue.

I saw him when I was walking through Central Park one day, not that long ago. He swooped by me (missing me by about three feet) with some large furry/feathered animal in his grasp. He landed in Sheep's Meadow and began to tear his captured prey apart.

And who said that Central Park was safe anymore? Maybe not if your small and furry (beware rats!)

Awesome animal, huh?
