Fig. 4

Change point analysis of a lesser kestrel’s 7 min flight in southwestern Spain (inset map). The upper panel illustrates the track of the flight, with the colors indicating 14 identified phases starting with the dark blue (phase I, at the indicated start) and cycling twice through high contrast rainbow colors to the final red roost (phase XIV, finish). The legend indicates whether a particular portion of the track contained a significant advective (a) or rotational component(R), both (RA), or neither (U). The lower panels indicate the estimated values of the five RACVM parameters for each phase over time, with the width of the bars indicating 95% confidence intervals. Note that positive and negative values for ω represent clockwise and counterclockwise rotation, respectively, and values of 0 for ω, μ x and μ y indicate that a non-rotational and/or advective model was selected
