Movie Night: The Legend of Pale Male

This is a great film! Here is the description of the film from the website:

"Affectionately known to New Yorkers as Pale Male, the hawk became a magnificent obsession and a metaphor for triumph against all odds. His nest, perched on a posh 5th Avenue co-op, starts out as a novel curiosity to a handful of avid birdwatchers but becomes an international tourist destination - a place of pilgrimage.

Then, on a December afternoon without warning, in the space of half an hour, the building dismantles Pale Male's beloved nest. In a wingbeat, media from around the world assemble on 5th Avenue to cover the unprecedented protest. Gathering behind Pale Male is an army of birdwatchers, movie stars, poets, children, dogs, and late night comedy show hosts. What unfolds next, as they say, could only happen in New York."

The trailer is available at

The film is 85 minutes. Discussion with Laura Horton, Wild Equity Staff Attorney, and Noreen Weeden, Golden Gate Audubon Conservation Project Manager, will follow the film.

Light refreshments will be provided.

    That was soooo much fun! As always I wish I could have chatted with everyone more. Since I had seen the previous version of the film, I had thought it was going to be more like watching a beloved rerun. But there was a lot of new footage. Loved it! Thank you to the volunteers who made this night possible. If anyone is interested in volunteering at a future event, please send me an email.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
