Article: The hawk has landed: Braking mid-air to prioritize safety over energy or speed - https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2022/06/220630142218.htm?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email

Paper: Optimization of avian perching manoeuvres - https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-022-04861-4


Harris’ hawks were flown between perches in a purpose-built motion capture studio, wearing a template of retroreflective markers close to the centre of mass (inset; tail markers also shown). Swooping was initiated by a take-off jump, followed by a powered dive (yellow line). This transitioned at its lowest point (black dot) into an unpowered climb (blue line), finishing with a rapid pitch-up manoeuvre that ended with the body almost vertical and with the wings outstretched as the feet contacted the perch.
