Andean Condors Considered the ‘largest flying bird in the world’ an adult Andean Condor’s wingspan can reach up to 3.2 meters (10.5 feet) and weigh up to 15 kg (33 pounds). It is the largest raptor in the world.

Due to the weight and breadth of its wings it prefers windy areas where it can soar effortlessly, such as the warm uplifting air currents found in the Colca Canyon, Peru. When in flight they can reach heights of 5,500 meters (18,000 feet) or almost 3.4 miles upwards!
