Data from: Ontogeny of aerial righting and wing flapping in juvenile birds

Dennis Evangelista, Sharlene Cam, Tony Huynh, Igor Krivitskiy & Robert Dudley
Mechanisms of aerial righting in juvenile chukar partridge (Alectoris chukar) were studied from hatching to 14 days-post-hatching (dph). Asymmetric movements of the wings were used from 1 to 8 dph to effect progressively more successful righting behaviour via body roll. Following 8 dph, wing motions transitioned to bilaterally symmetric flapping that yielded aerial righting via nose-down pitch, along with substantial increases in vertical force production during descent. Ontogenetically, the use of such wing motions to...
