Outrage over Pale Male's eviction
Hawk tries to rebuild

NEW YORK (Reuters) -- He was a movie star who resided on Manhattan's tony Upper East Side, drawing a devoted crowd of followers who gathered daily to catch a glimpse of him...

this is ridiculous. As long as "Pale Male" wasn't divebombing pedestrians in Central Park,or something like that, why move him? Leave the poor guy be. He wasn't bothering anybody.
But if they remove the spikes in question Mssr. P. Male & family's droppings will be more than made up for by the legions of pigeons that will be sure to return. This critter must have kept the doves away for years. Sounds short-sighted to me by Jiminy.
Pigeons and RATS will now flood the streets there... well, the RATS are already all over NYC...

As far as I can tell, PM & Lola were just doing the conservative family values thing --raising their chicks and minding their own business.
Can't have any of that, can we?
A story with much more significance than a couple of hawks is being over looked here.
We have a building that does research and thinks
This is idiotic-somebody needs to tell these idiots to leave the poor bird alone. Hawks are all over the place out here in the country, but when we lived in the city seeing one was a real event requiring a camera. I hope the people who caused the hawks to move are plagued with rats in their attics and pigeons crapping on them every time they walk outside.
Pale Male and his mate won't be using the nest for anything until this spring. Hawks do not live in their nests unless there are babies in it. This pair inhabits Central Park. I don't agree with what was done, but by this spring, the nest will be returned for the next clutch of eggs. That is plenty of time.
the dude is hetero & a family man to boot! He definately had to go.
If that is the case, somebody better call an exorcist...
That is one amazing building!
Pale Male and his family had roosted there for 11 years. I wonder what prompted the removal?
True, but it had been there for a long time. I wonder what prompted them to remove it after all this time?
Great pictures on the website.
And idiot apartment dwellers. Hope the rats chew their shoes and the pigeons poop in their hair. >:>
Apparently the only "pale male" that the left cares about.
I don't know but I do know that this building and it's management company doesn't need the bad publicity. The nspikes will be put back before we know it and the hawks will rebuild. It'll give them something to do ;-)
So I see.
Bingo! A nuclear family and not on the government dole. Now if it was a substandard nest built by a government contractor for the female hawk who was hand fed by a welfare dept employee every day and Pale male only showed up to fertilize more eggs and occasionally kick the crap out of the female or the chicks, then it would have stayed.
Given the way people vote in NYC, I'd be forced to conclude that the Pigeons are as well...
Good one. Hehehehe...
This is a co-op building. In New York City, we refer to the co-op as "The Building", short for "the co-op" or more importantly, the Board of Directors of the co-op. The Board sets policy and I suspect this was a Board decision and may not reflect the feelings of each and every Shareholder. For example, when refering to the House Rules of the building, we say "The Building does not permit dogs in the front elevator", "The Building requires ...", etc.
But it does sound funny, now that I think about it.
Also, I guess you can say that the hawks have flown the
From the desk of graybeard:
Apparently some of the snooty building residents didn't like the sight of occasional bird droppings on the sidewalk and complained-wonder how they'll like being shat upon by pigeons now?
Well, that explains it. Buildings are not known for brains, being the ultimate blockheads: Built out of blocks, taking up an entire block.
LOl! More like they were driven from the co-op.
Bet the board's full of self-professed environmentalist Kerry supporters. Hypocrites.
Could be but Kerry supporters are more likely to have bats in the belfry than hawks on the ledge.
Here's the profile, with pictures,of the building
The building has 12 apartments.
Guess who is on the board?
Paula Zahn's husband is head of the co-op board, so she must live in that building.
I have to agree. City Hawks probably help keep the pigeon population down. Maybe they ought to bring in some owls to get rid of all of those rats!
Thanks for the head's up. If doesn't surprise me that these so-called soft-hearted liberals would do something like this.
I'm glad to see this matter getting the publicity it so richly deserves. It shows just how little concern they really have for the issues they 'hawk'. (pun intended)
