At long last Gracie is introduced to “Ike” my new eyas parent reared Northern Goshawk. It is early days in his training and he is at the early stages of manning, which is the taming of him to everyday busy human life. Gracie is with me for most of this manning so that he learns to accept her together with all the other distractions. This video clip shows "Ike" on his bow perch and then feeding on the glove with Gracie in close proximity. You may notice that I am the only one of the three of us that is bothered by the persistent "Thunder bugs".
