Thanks for visiting...

My little friend is enjoying his free life every day...

Some wholesome force has been looking after him throughout the time which brought him to perch here.

He was born free and unaided by Man.

He has no obnoxious bands on his feet...

No trauma from being handled by any humans.

He is free to live...

and free to die.

Fly my little friend and stay far away from our grasp so we shall be compelled to learn from your beautiful life instead of trying to teach you our selfish ways.

The MET is using rodent baiting stations containing the lethal active ingredient 'Bromethalin'. These stations are placed in open areas behind the MET in Central Park specifically where Palemale & Lola catches a great deal of rats!
The Metropolitan Museum of Art has a very careless attitude toward animals;
Their lavish glass windows kills hundreds of migrating birds each year. Recently the glass in those windows were replaced but nothing was done to the new glass to help prevent this ongoing tragedy.
All around the MET are rodent baiting stations which threaten the lives of our precious wildlife especially Palemale & Lola. Both the MET's management and their private pest control contractor has lied to me about the seriousness of the poison used in these bait stations. Presently the bait used is worse than the anti-coagulants used previously. Please call the Director's Office and tell them to stop endangering the lives of our precious wildlife!
