Thor - Nictating Membrane

Pearland, Texas

Keep your eyes OPEN!!! lol...it didn't quite work ;-) Here Thor has blinked his nictating membrane just in time for the photo.

Notice how he is sitting back on his haunches. When he is at arm's length to me he stands right up tall, but the closer I bring him to me the more he sits back on his haunches until at last he actually falls over backward as he loses his balance. It is almost comical, but then we are only in the first stages of his training.

Hmmm, one of my grandkids suggested that he looks like a zombie hawk here! lol...
