Palemale (and a Stinker or two) in National Geographic Magazine, December 2008.

A couple of Palemale & Lola's neighbors paid them a short visit just before noon on Thursday.

This peregrine falcon is not as graceful in his bathroom habits as any of even our most uncouth visiting red-tails...

But you're beautiful regardless.

Lola: "Unbecoming!"

All images photographed on Thursday November 27, 2008.

Thanks for all the letters about the photos in National Geographic Magazine (December 2008). Please note that the copies of the magazine which are sent to subscribers is quite different than those on the newsstands. The subscription issue contains four pages of photographs but the newsstand version only has one page.

The reference of me being a "Most Hated New Yorker" was inspired by this New York Press Survey a few years ago after Palemale & Lola's nest was destroyed.
