Andean Condor

These birds may travel 200 miles a day to forage for food. They rarely flap their wings, relying instead on thermals and updrafts to keep them aloft.

After a large meal of carrion the condor may be too heavy to fly. It takes this opportunity to preen its feathers and socialize with other condors.
