Data from: Flap or soar? How a flight generalist responds to its aerial environment

E. Emiel Van Loon, Judy Shamoun-Baranes, Willem Bouten, Christiaan Meijer & C. J. Camphuysen
The aerial environment is heterogeneous in space and time and directly influences the costs of animal flight. Volant animals can reduce these costs by using different flight modes, each with their own benefits and constraints. However, the extent to which animals alter their flight modes in response to environmental conditions has rarely been studied in the wild. To provide insight into how a flight generalist can reduce the energetic cost of movement, we studied flight...
