|Coordinates||Determine the position of the cell (cell center) in the model landscape.|
|Size||The size of a cell (length (l); width (w)) represents a real-world dimension of 100 m x 100 m.|
|Number||10.201 cells, which corresponds to 102 km²|
|Habitat quality (hq)||
The cells can take integer values for habitat quality (hq) between
0 and 3. hq = 0 represents unsuitable foraging habitat, e.g., forest.
hq = 3 represents the best foraging conditions, e.g., grassland with a
favorable mowing regime.
|Coordinates||Determine the position of the Red Kite in the model landscape.|
|Flight distance||Length of a straightforward flight: 100 m|
|Circling radius||Radius of a soaring circle during foraging flight: 100 m|
|Flight speed||Average speed of the Red Kite: 15 km/h (Bruderer and Boldt 2001)|
|Flight height probability (pfh)||Probability that the raptor ranges at a height swathed by a WT rotor; based on empirical flight height distribution|
|Flight through rotor probability (prsa)||Probability that the raptor flies through the rotor-swept area and does not pass through.|
Physical collision probability (pBAND)
Probability of a bird being hit by a rotor blade if passing orthogonally to rotor-swept area.
|Collision avoidance probability (pav)||The likelihood of a Red Kite actively avoiding collision with a WT.|
|Probability of circling and flying forward (pf)||Controls flight behavior during the search flight (see Fig. 2). The variable pf indicates the probability of flying forward. The probability of performing a left respectively a right full circle is (1-pf)/2.|
|Maximum residence time on cell (T)||
Determines how long the agent occupies the same cell, given that all
neighboring cells are of lower habitat quality.
|Coordinates||Determine the position of the WT in the model landscape.|
|Hub height (hh)||Height of the rotor center: 78 m|
|Rotor blade length (r)||Half of the rotor diameter: ½ of 82 m = 41 m|
