Abstract

A chamber is described for use with raptorial birds and live prey. The chamber is equipped with visual and physical access doors and is designed to be operated in conjunction with an instrumented perch and electromechanical programming equipment. The search detection, pursuit, and capture components of a hunting episode are separable with this system; participation by the raptor in each component can be controlled and measured.
