Falconry has a long history. However, during all this time, it did not occur to anyone to study the tactics of the falcon when it attacks its prey. Professor Susan Amador Kane and her colleagues decided to fill the gap.
Scientists have attached miniature GoPro cameras to the heads of several tamed birds with the consent of their owners to capture some details of the falconry.
The behavior of birds was in many ways reminiscent of the tactics of bats and dragonflies. The predator clearly regulates the flight speed, which makes its prey seem motionless at the time of shooting. The falcon is in complete control of the situation and chooses the moment to attack. As the footage shows, the victim has no chance of surviving.
