Free in Central Park
Received yesterday, 8/28, from Murray Head and a PS:
Hi Marie,Recently one of Pale Male's three offspring was seriously injured.
He had flown into a roof-top glass enclosed swimming pool on the upper East Side and suffered head trauma. Young hawks have not yet learned to recognize such obstacles.

He was driven by a dedicated animal rescue worker to WINORR* where he received the care and rehabilitation needed so he could be released back to the park.He was released today [8/28] at Cedar Hill in Central Park by WINORR's Bobby Horvath and Cathy St. Pierre
PS some additional facts from WINORR [sent by Murray Head today]:
Reported from WINORR
"He was treated with medication and hand fed cut up food until he recovered and became a hawk again. Luckily he had no other injuries and was returned to his territory today and flew off nicely. A few hours later it was reported that his father showed up and sat next to him on a branch."
