Trained Vulture Lands On Paraglider’s Selfie Stick While Guiding Them To Updraft

This is a video of a trained vulture landing on the selfie stick of paragliding instructor Scott Mason while parahawking (a discipline he developed back in 2001), a real activity that exists combining paragliding and falconry, in which a trained bird of prey leads a paraglider to thermal updraft columns so they can stay airborne longer. How about that! With no context I would have just assumed this vulture was planning to cut their parachute lines so they crash then pick their bones clean.
