This guy uses trained hawks and other raptors to find thermals for him when he goes paragliding.

Dang, that’s cool.

I opened this fully expecting it was another thread about Stephen.

You’re right though, tres cool. I love whenever people come up with a new, innovative melding of sports.

I saw this with my own eyes at Saranghot Hill in Nepal this May. It’s growing in popularity - and is absolutely amazing. Some of them use eagles.

Coincidence, oddly enough – this was today’s word from an email list I’m on.

A hang glider pilot once told me that an eagle had followed him into thermals.
