Abstract: The way in which flocks are organized affects the ability of birds to perceive the landscape over which they fly: if the pattern of the flock changes, then the generalized perception of the terrain over which birds fly will also change. In this paper the features of dynamic spatial organization of pigeons in a flock during flights over landscapes with different characteristics were studied based on the analysis of GPS tracks of birds. The ways of group flight were revealed for typical situations, such as survey of unfamiliar terrain or flight home from remote sites. The spatial distribution of distances between pairs of individual birds and directions of movement were calculated, and then related to the features of terrain over which flights were occurred. The data analysis was performed based on comparison of flock patterns during group flights over terrain of distinct types (sea coast, urban and countryside terrain, and natural landscape). The spatial data was processed using the ge ographic information system QGIS. (More)
