Science - Zoology / Ornithology / falconry
English term or phrase: slip
Regarding falconry, this is for the quarry setup whereby it is in a position to be caught, usually referencing birds to be caught such as ducks or crows. How would anyone translate the above? Thanks. There must be a direct equivalent but I cannot find it. Would really appreciate it. Thanks!

Seitengleitflug
Explanation:
There are several references if you search in aviation. This term should also apply to flight patterns of birds of prey.

In your example: Seitengleitflug mit Rückenwind

You can also look under "Schiebeflug" or "Slippen" and you will get a bunch of information about how to fly it too!
