30 meters, 30 feet, it's all the same. This isn't rocket science, after all.

But in the end, this whole study seems like somebody trying to win an Ig Nobel prize. Birds crash into planes because the planes are moving too fast for them to get out of the way? Whodathunkit?

Well, considering that peregrine falcons can reach 300 Kph+ it looks like they'd be easy prey.
