    Hunting flight speeds of five southern African raptors

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    The flight speeds of hunting falconry birds were determined using global positioning system data loggers. Until now, the hunting flight speed of African raptors has not been directly measured. We predicted that hunting flight speeds would differ between species and...
