About the author
Michele Panuccio is an ornithologist who study the behavioural ecology of raptor. He has spent long time studying raptor migration using visual observations, radar tracking and ringing recoveries analysis. His interested focused on trend analysis, on the effect of natural barrier on raptor movements, on social interactions and on the effect of weather conditions on migration. He is also carrying on research on other aspects of raptor ecology including breeding and wintering. He is a co-founder of MEDRAPTORS (Mediterranean Raptor Migration Network) and now he is coordinating a long-term monitoring project of bird migration at the Strait of Messina.
