Data from: Terminal attack trajectories of peregrine falcons are described by the proportional navigation guidance law of missiles

Caroline H. Brighton, Adrian L. R. Thomas & Graham K. Taylor
The ability to intercept uncooperative targets is key to many diverse flight behaviors, from courtship to predation. Previous research has looked for simple geometric rules describing the attack trajectories of animals, but the underlying feedback laws have remained obscure. Here, we use GPS loggers and onboard video cameras to study peregrine falcons, Falco peregrinus, attacking stationary targets, maneuvering targets, and live prey. We show that the terminal attack trajectories of peregrines are not described by...
