Those of you who care about Pale Male and Lola will be outraged to learn that they are once again being harassed by the human residents of the building at 927 Fifth Avenue, where these birds nest. Apparently, the building’s human residents sent workmen onto the roof overlooking the nest today, where they proceeded to drop ropes over the side of the building and into the nest, despite the fact that Lola just began incubating eggs and was nestled in there.
One of the people involved whined copiously about the necessity for carrying out more window washing, but finally backed down because the authorities, who might actually do their job this time, stepped in. Currently, the situation appears to be under control, but many people are now watching every move made by the residents of this building and their minions, all of who have revealed themselves to be both arrogant and absolutely untrustworthy in their selfish attempts to persecute these birds until they lose their eggs or the chicks, or abandon their nest.
Pale Male and Lola are a pair of urban-dwelling red-tailed hawks, Buteo jamaicensis, who live in NYC.
