NYC’s High Flying Couple: Pale Male and Octavia May be New Parents

Posted on Apr 28, 2013

New York City is one of the top five bird watching locations in America.  Birders are rejoicing at what they believe are signs of the birth of new hawk babies to famed Central Park red-tailed hawk Pale Male and his current belle Octavia.

The hawk couple, who nest on the balcony at 927 Fifth Avenue, brought a rat and a squirrel to the nest Sunday. They are exhibiting feeding motions, leading viewers to believe a new generation has arrived.

Approximately 230 different species of birds can be found in Central Park during the year with some birds living in the Park year round and several species making an important stopover to rest and feed during spring and fall migrations.
