Palemale on the Woody Building water tower on Saturday afternoon.

Palemale (and a Stinker or two) in National Geographic Magazine, December 2008.
The reference of me in NGM being a "Most Hated New Yorker" was inspired by this New York Press Survey a few years ago, soon after Palemale & Lola's nest was destroyed.

Palemale near the Locust Grove very early Saturday morning.


Lola over the Model Sailboat Pond.

Lola over the MSB Pond again.

A new adult red-tailed hawk around Bethesda Fountain, Central Park.

The new Bethesda Fountain adult perched on the south coast of the Lake.

The new adult flew very low over the breath of the Lake and attempted to catch prey on the bank.

Cooper's hawk at the NE corner of Cedar Hill.

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.
