“He really was an enchanting person. In some way he was like the spiritual father of everybody…. It is hard to imagine Central Park without Charles Kennedy.” Marie Winn, author of Red-tails in Love, and close friend of Charles, remembering him after his death in October 2004

Pale Male Soars in Houston!!

Deb and I just had a fantastic experience with the great people of the Houston Audubon Society. Wow! What gracious folks––staff and members alike. After spending the month of October enjoying a variety of interactions with the Houston group as part of their annual gala, we flew down to Houston for a screening of “The Legend of Pale Male”, which took place on Thursday evening. It was a moving experience to accept an award from Houston Audubon honoring Charles’s dedication to nature conservation, birds, and Pale Male….. and honoring his body of work as a photographer and writer.

I look forward to future work with the Houston folks as we develop new materials for educators based on the film and Charles’s books. Charles loved serendipity and synchronicity. I think we’ve found both here in Houston!

Thanks again, Houston friends!
