Remotely-sensed wind speed predicts soaring behaviour in a wide-ranging pelagic seabird

Abstract:

Global wind patterns affect flight strategies in many birds, including pelagic seabirds, many of which use wind-powered soaring to reduce energy costs during at-sea foraging trips and migration. Such long-distance movement patterns are underpinned by local interactions between wind conditions and flight behaviour, but these fine-scale relationships are far less well-understood. Here we show that remotely-sensed ocean wind speed and direction are highly significant predictors of soaring behavi...
