The Andean condor is the world's largest flying bird. This magnificent creature can weigh up to 33 pounds and have a wingspan of almost 10 feet! With its bald head and white plumage, the Andean condor is easy to identify in the air.

These birds are found in the mountains of South America, where they feed on carrion (dead animals). Despite their large size, Andean condors are incredibly graceful creatures that can fly for hours without tiring. They are also one of the longest-lived birds, with a lifespan of up to 60 years.
