This is the true-life mystery of a pair of red-tailed hawks who, in the spring of 1992, built a nest on a high ledge of a building on New York City's Fifth Avenue. The author chronicles the adventures not only of the hawks, but also of Central Park's other wildlife residents and of the birdwatchers.

Review quote

"Enchanting." --"The New York Review of Books" "An amazing drama, as good as any soap opera and all the more remarkable since it is a true wildlife story." -- "Birding" "A sublime lesson in adaptability, hope, and wild-bred devotion. It'll make you look to the skies, no matter where you live." --Carl Hiaasen, "Mirabella" "Astonishing. . . . If you don't believe that the Central Park of Stuart Little has always existed, read this book and open your eyes." --Mary Tyler Moore "Engaging . . . Dr. Zhivago with feathers. . . . That such simple pleasures can be savored today, in the heart of frantic New York City, is a bit of a miracle." --"The Boston Globe" " 'Give your heart to the hawks, ' the poet Robinson Jeffers wrote. Marie Winn certainly has, and so will readers of this delightful book." --"The New York Times Book Review"
