From 2003: Pale Male, NYC’s favorite hawk – CBS News

Correspondent Bill Geist reported on Pale’s prowess as a provider (delivering take-out to his chicks), and talked with some of the bird’s followers, including documentary director Frederic Lilian, writer Charles Kennedy and photographer Lincoln Karim, in a story that originally aired on “CBS Sunday Morning” July 13, 2003.
