Summer Eyas Fun

I'm raising an eyas male Gyrfalcon for a friend of mine this summer.  The bird will eventually go into his breeding project and hopefully help produce "falcons of the future" through artificial insemination.   My family  and I have been calling him Nanook (or just "Bird" according to my youngest) and he's been a lot of fun so far...
