A new hawk for Helen Macdonald
Helen Macdonald’s acclaimed best-selling memoir H is for Hawk chronicled her adoption of a hawk after her father’s death. That hawk, Mabel, died before the book was complete, but now she’s training a new hawk—and this time, it’s being filmed.
This PBS Nature documentary film, H is for Hawk: A New Chapter (PBS, Nov. 1 at 8, then online at pbs.org/nature), “follows Macdonald’s emotional and intimate journey as she adopts a young goshawk and attempts to raise it as her own,” according to PBS.
