25-Year-Old Pale Male Is Alive and Well

Pale male 100 4-4-15 jamiesbirds

Since Pale Male came to New York City as a youngster in 1991 — presumably born in 1990 — some people cannot believe that this is the very same bird 25 years later. It is, and the legend of Pale Male continues. The markings are the same; this is him on 5th Ave on a windy Saturday, April 4, 2015.

We should plan a 25th big birthday party for Pale Male this spring or summer! If interested, please contact me.  And if you haven’t read Marie Winn’s book, Red Tails in Love, you should.
