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

Light refreshments will be provided.
