Red-Tails in Love

PALE MALE'S STORY--A True Wildlife Drama in Central Park


Marie Winn is our guide into a secret world, a true wilderness in the heart of a city. The scene is New York's Central Park, but the rich natural history that emerges here – the loons, raccoons, woodpeckers, owls, and hundreds of visiting songbirds – will appeal to wildlife lovers everywhere. At its heart is the saga of the Fifth Avenue hawks, which begins as a love story and develops into a full-fledged mystery.

Broers in die Stryd

Met die uitbreek van die Tweede Anglo-Boereoorlog in 1899 het ’n groot aantal Hollanders en Hollandse uitgewekenes by die Boere aangesluit. Hul redes het gewissel van lojaliteit teenoor hul gemeenskaplike afkoms tot sterk anti-Britse gevoelens en ’n soeke na avontuur. Broers in die stryd vertel van hierdie vrywilligers se beproewings – die meeste…

At the outset of our journey we meet the Regulars, a small band of nature lovers who devote themselves to the park and its wildlife. As they watch Pale Male, a remarkable young red-tailed hawk, woo and win his first mate, they are soon transformed into addicted hawk-watchers. From a bench at the park's model-boat pond they observe the hawks building a nest in an astonishing spot – a high ledge of a Fifth Avenue building three floors above Mary Tyler Moore's apartment and across the street from Woody Allen's.

The drama of the Fifth Avenue hawks – hunting, courting, mating, and striving against great odds to raise a family in their unprecedented nest site – is alternately hilarious and heartbreaking. Red-Tails in Love will delight and inspire readers for years to come.
