Andean Condor, Vultur gryphus, Magallanes, Chile

Masterfully controlling the airflow around its huge wings with the aid of its spread finger-like primary feathers, an adult male Andean Condor Vultur gryphus soars with deceptive ease above a gorge in Sierra Baguales range, Magallanes, Chilean Patagonia while looking for food in the form of an abandoned puma kill, usually a guanaco carcass.

Largest of flying terrestrial birds in terms of wingspan at more than 3m, it is only surpassed by Royal and Wandering albatrosses and it is always a show-stopper whenever it passes overhead, especially at low altitude when its huge dimensions can be readily appreciated.
