Zombie Bird?

Zombie Bird?
 
This is not a still from an upcoming show “The Flying Dead”, but instead are consecutive frames of a Red-shouldered Hawk with the nictitating membrane present. It is the clear membrane, or eyelid that protects the animal but still allows him to have at least partial vision during the blink. It is important for birds of prey when they hunt to not lose sight of the prey as they fly. I like the detail in the membrane and you can actually see veins.
