High-Speed Video Allowing Researchers to Pattern Flight Design After Bird Flight

Students at Stanford University are taking photos of birds' movements that were previously invisible to the human eye. The photos are being used to study everything from the movements the winged-creatures make just before taking off and landing to the length and position of their legs during flight.
