Figures resulting from the research into Preventing bird strikes: testing an artificial predator, the RobotFalcon, to deter flocks of birds
This dataset contains the data for the article: "Improved deterrence of birds using an artificial predator, the RobotFalcon".
Figures 3 and s2:
The responses of bird flocks to deterrence by a RobotFalcon, a DJI Mavic Pro drone and control (no action). The data concerns the amount of brief landings the birds performed when flown at with the RobotFalcon and drone and the time it took for the flocks to fly away.
Figures 4 and 5:
Data on the distance at which flocks initiated flight to a RobotFalcon and the frequency of collective escape exhibited by flocks hunted by a RobotFalcon and a drone.
The time it takes for birds to return after deterrence by a RobotFalcon at Workum and by regular deterrence methods (pyrotechnics and distress calls) used at airbase Leeuwarden.
