Hi, think that in such situation it would be great to record the
aerodynamic noise made by the falcon and his wings cutting the air. For
this I would suggest very low noise mics and recorder. E.g. Rode NT1 with a
SD7xx, or Rode NTG8 (or a Sennheiser shotgun) to focus more on the subject;
a Teling could be optimal for its gain and low noise but more difficult to
accurately point on a fast moving source.
