Its Worth a Thought...


Birds

The City of Melbourne runs as a part of the Moomba festival the annual birdman rally. During this event spectators are treated to the crazy and bizarre attempts of people trying to fly using home-made gliders or human powered aircraft. Participants, who raise funds for charity, launch themselves off a platform aiming to be the one who flies the furthest before landing in the not-so-pristine waters of the Yarra River.

In contrast to this, the fastest bird on the planet, the peregrine falcon, can reach speeds of up to 300 – 400 km/h when diving. Some years ago when flying in a small executive jet from Perth to Meekatharra, a loud bang startled all of us onboard and the pilot informed us a bird’s life had just ended ended on the windscreen of the plane. We were flying at 7000 feet (2,100 m) at the time. However that seems rather ordinary when compared to the endangered Ruppell’s griffon vulture – that is known to fly at 37,000 feet (11,200 m). Most humans will have passed out at this altitude due to a lack of oxygen.
