These hawks are tame, they know not to fly into the parachute lol.. The eagle however was wild and was probabily just defending itself against what it thought was an enemy :)

#4 Thats all well and good until one accidently misses and still lands in the clump of string from those paraglider.
Though i guess its unlikely, i wouldn't want to risk it :) Long way to fall accidently.

1:17 looks like they are not used to land on a moving object :D

#10 Hawks are very used to landing on moving objects , most of the prey animals they hunt are moving fast when they are caught. (birds,rabbits,mice)
If you watch that part again you will see that the hawk was hesitant to land because this time there was no piece of meat in the hand.
