Pale Male, a red-tailed hawk that has called New York City’s Central Park home for nearly two decades, is an awe inspiring bird that is adored by many. Named for his unusually light coloring, Pale Male was the first hawk of his kind to take up residence in Central Park, setting up his nest on one of Fifth Avenue’s most exclusive apartment buildings. Once admiring him from Central Park’s model boat lake, New Yorkers have been enamored with Pale Male for many years.This beautiful mouth-blown bird features an expansive ivory body intricately marbled with a stunning red tail and brilliant metallic beak. Standing approximately 8” tall and 14” long, this nearly life-size statue is an amazing tribute to the bird that has inspired so many. The image just doesn’t do this bird justice; you’ll be astounded by its true beauty and splendor.

Oiva Toikka’s imagination and iittala’s skilled Finnish glassblowers have created magical glass birds for over 30 years. Oiva is inspired by birds found all over the globe, but he makes each creation his own.

For every Pale Male purchased in 2007 iittala, Inc. will make a donation to the New York City Audubon Society. Each Pale Male has a special hang tag acknowledging the co-operation between iittala, Inc and New York City Audubon.
