During a Topvogel falconry show in the village of Diessen, Netherlands, falconer Sjors Van de Wiel demonstrated how a majestic Harris’ hawk with a large wingspan is able to tuck its wings in order to fly easily in small spaces, such as the two volunteers who were standing head-to-head, without ruffling a single feather.
Topvogel shows include a number of different birds, including owls, eagles, buzzards and hawks.
