Pale Male: Citizen Hawk of New York City
Written by Janet Schulman & illustrated by Meilo So
picture book
Recommend Ages: 3-7

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.

Hawk Rising
Written by Maria Gianferrari & illustrated by Brian Floca
picture book
Recommend Ages: 4-8

“A father red-tailed hawk hunts prey for his family in a suburban neighborhood in this thrilling, fierce, and gorgeous nonfiction picture book”—Amazon.
