really good captures all 4.:highfive:
Looks like the bird's nictitating membrane membrane in action. I just reheard that term last week.


"This clear eyelid can be drawn across the eyeball for protection from debris, prey, or the dryness of air, similarly to regular eyelids. Reptiles, birds, sharks, and some mammals evolved this extra layer of protection to keep their eyes moist and clean while maintaining visibility."
