Video & brief story on Goshawk pursuit strategies -- as good as anything we've designed, & its sight & maneuverability is, let's say, advanced. Fun for a long winter's night, March being heavy on the in-like-a-lion this year.
"Suzanne Amador Kane, a physicist at Haverford College, collaborated with falconers to record and analyze the way goshawks pursue prey. ... she does have video, from a camera mounted on a goshawk’s head. ... What surprised her, and what she reported Jan. 15 in The Journal of Experimental Biology, is that the goshawk, named Shinta, used both of these strategies.
