Flight

 Image of the Month – March 2017

The adult Andean Condor (Vultur gryphus) has a wingspan of more than 10 feet.  This soaring bird was photographed from a clifftop in Chilean Patagonia. The view shows the spread of the more than 30 inch long primary feathers, the broad tail, the crest on top of the head, and the white dorsal feathers which make the wings look like a piano keyboard.
