Parahawking With Birds Of Prey Is Awesome

A unique experience giving humans the experience of interacting with vultures as they soar through the sky has taken flight in Europe. Originally launched in Nepal in 2001 by Scott Mason, from Dagenham, Essex, Parahawking combines ancient falconry methods with paragliding in the birds of prey own environment. Now operating out of Algodonales, Spain, Scott will spend anywhere between six weeks to six months training the American Black Vultures. During the flight, paragliders place small scraps of meat onto their gloved hands and hold their arm out wide as the birds gently land to take the food before flying away.
