Extremely fast dives help peregrine falcons maneuver to catch agile prey

  • Robin Mills

Pers / media: OnderzoekAcademic

Description

Peregrine falcons are famed for their high-speed, high-altitude stoops. Hunting prey at perhaps the highest speed of any animal places a stooping falcon under extraordinary physical, physiological, and cognitive demands, yet it remains unknown how this behavioural strategy promotes catch success. Because the behavioral aspects of stooping are intimately related to its biomechanical constraints, we address this question through an embodied cognition approach. We model the falcon’s cognition using guidance laws inspired by theory and experiment, and embody this in a physics-based simulation of predator and prey flight. Stooping maximizes catch success against agile prey by minimizing roll inertia and maximizing the aerodynamic forces available for maneuvering, but requires a tightly tuned guidance law, and exquisitely precise vision and control.

Surveying from up to 915 meters (3,000 feet) above their targets, peregrines begin a stoop by pulling their wings back into an aerodynamic "T" shape and plummeting toward their intended target with such astonishing precision that they can end their descent by snatching their prey with their oversized talons or knocking them unconscious.

    BeschrijvingThe peregrine falcon is described as the fastest animal on Earth: during its hunting dive, known as a stoop, it can reach speeds of over 200 km per hour. The peregrine preys on other birds which it catches mid-flight, so it must intercept a moving target at these high speeds. The falcon’s strategy for successful interception was recently shown to closely match that of manmade missiles, but it was unclear how its demanding, high-speed maneuvers gave it an advantage.

    BeschrijvingPeregrine falcons may well be the fastest hunters in the animal kingdom. Famously, they attack smaller birds, like starlings, by using a technique called a stoop. This involves flying upwards to a high altitude then dive-bombing back down at breathtaking speeds that regularly reach more than 200 mph (320 km/h). The fastest stoop ever recorded stands at 242 mph (nearly 390 km/h).

Using a physics-based computer simulation, researchers in the Netherlands and the UK have explained why the raptors have evolved an attack strategy that puts extreme physical and cognitive demands on them. The research could also help with the development of autonomous flapping-wing drones.

    BeschrijvingPeregrine falcons catch their prey by diving from enormous heights and reaching speeds faster than any other animal on the planet. While this hunting technique is fascinating to watch – unless you’re the prey – it begs the question: why do peregrine falcons chose to enact such risky behavior, and endure significant physical and cognitive demands, to catch their prey? New research published in PLOS Computational Biology uses computer simulations to explore this incredible hunting display.

    BeschrijvingThe world’s fastest hunter—the peregrine falcon—snatches prey out of the sky at speeds of more than 300 kilometers per hour. This breakneck maneuver, called a stoop, gives the bird-eating raptors an element of surprise and allows them to outmaneuver their prey. But it wouldn’t be possible at slower attack speeds, according to a new study.

The birds fly to great heights, then tuck their wings and plummet. Mid nose-dive, falcons have been clocked at 220 mph, equal to the top speed of a Formula One racecar. The dive, called a stoop, is the deadly tactic that falcons use to catch other birds.

    Release datum12/04/2018
    BeschrijvingComputer simulations of peregrine falcon attacks show that the extreme speeds reached during dives from high altitudes enhance the raptors' ability to execute maneuvers needed to nab agile prey that would otherwise escape. Robin Mills and colleagues of the University of Groningen, Netherlands, and Oxford University, UK, report this discovery in PLOS Computational Biology.
