More Snowy Owl stuff

Here are the pic's that Cassie took yesterday when I was working with the Snowy Owl. I feel things are coming along pretty well. I do know that he is testing me on a few things. I am comfortable with it though. Cindy (my Mentor) is there for the work outs. I trust her. I know she won't let me do anything to harm the bird or anything where the bird would harm me. I also know she trust me or the bird wouldn't be going to my house tomorrow.

If you hadn't noticed, we got snow earlier this week. About 6 inches worth. The temperatures have been in the +20°F's during the day and single digits at night ever since. Winter is here.

That's an awesome bird, and you look very comfortable with him. I love these photos, and watching how you are learning to work with him. Bravo to the two of you.

How does a snowy test its handler?

Thanks Laura. He test me by being as stuborn as me. Resisting training, commands, etc.
