I don't know if you are interested, but someone sent me this link to a film of paragiding with Raptors. I found it absolutely breathtaking.

That's very neat Karwyn - I have seen some videos of parahawking from Nepal but I didn't realize they were doing this in the USA too. Boy that's exciting!

In a feature story in the January 16 issue of Forbes Magazine I write about how the revival of the iconic but critically endangered California condor is on a collision course with the Golden State’s wind farm boom in the Tehachapi Mountains north of Los Angeles.

Government biologists, wind industry executives and environmentalists have formed a task force and are racing to find a technological solution to the condor conundrum. On the verge of extinction 25 years ago, North America’s largest bird is rapidly expanding into its historic range where wind turbines are sprouting like California poppies after a March rain.


The rest of this important story is here
