Updated Edition—Ten Years Later

The scene of this enchanting (and true) story is the Ramble, an unknown wilderness deep in the heart of New York's fabled Central Park. There an odd and amiable band of nature lovers devote themselves to observing and protecting the park's rich wildlife. When a pair of red-tailed hawks builds a nest atop a Fifth Avenue apartment house across the street from the model-boat pond, Marie Winn and her fellow "Regulars" are soon transformed into obsessed hawkwatchers. The hilarious and occasionally heartbreaking saga of Pale Male and his mate as they struggle to raise a family in their unprecedented nest site, and the affectionate portrait of the humans who fall under their spell will delight and inspire readers for years to come.

About the Author

Marie Winn wrote a column on nature and birdwatching for the Wall Street Journal for twelve years. Among her previous books are The Plug-In Drug: Television, Children & the Family (twenty-fifth anniversary edition 2003), and Children Without Childhood. Married to the filmmaker and palindromist Allan Miller, she spends part of every day in Central Park.
