Pale Male … He’s Back!

927 5th Ave home of pale male jamiesbirds 1-22-15

Does this Building and the nest (above middle/top window) look familiar? It is 927 Fifth Avenue at 74th Street, New York, home of Pale Male for the past two decades. (Click photos to enlarge and left arrow to return to post.)

Pale Male and Mate 3 jamiesbirds 1-22-15

Pale Male is back with (I believe ) his 8th mate, Octavia. If you are a birder, and you don’t know who Pale Male is, you must have been living under a rock for the last twenty years. Pale Male has a website, and a really wonderful book by Marie Winn entitled Red Tails in Love, and a movie, The Legend of Pale Male, and a Nature show.  (I am still trying to learn the details of his 24 amazing years in New York … your info and comments are welcome!)

Pale Male in flight 1-22-15

While I was watching at about 4.30 p.m. this afternoon, Pale Male took off and flew right over my head, all the while making his I-am-going-to-get-my-dinner-now Red-tail scream. It sent shivers down my spine and gave me goose bumps all over.
