A Visit from Pale Male
I was sitting in my office that looks out over Central Park when Pale Male, the Central Park Red-tailed Hawk, landed on my window sill for a visit just now. I was sitting in front of my computer, which is located next to my open window, so I couldn't help it, I reeeeeached out slowly and touched his tail! He turned around and bobbed his head at me a couple times, taking my measure with fierce dark eyes, then turned his back on me after deciding I am too big to eat. He surveyed his territory from his lofty perch for a minute or so and then suddenly, he was gone.
