Posture fluctuation of diving seabird during descent reflected in gyroscope data. a Typical sequence showing the posture fluctuation reflected in the angular velocity data of pitching direction during the descent of ADPE. The dynamic acceleration in the dorsoventral direction associated with wing beat and depth data are also represented. Video data (Additional file 2: Video S1), obtained from the video data logger attached to the back of ADPE, also show the body fluctuation occurring simultaneously with the wing beat. b Enlarged wave of a. c Schematic diagram of posture fluctuation in pitching direction
