WHEN FLYING RAISES NO FLAP–GLIDE, SOAR, FLOAT

Click here for results of study of Andean Condor and its flight patterns.  Wings are not for flapping at that size.  Any hummingbird would be jealous. Be interested in knowing the percentage of soar in the condor’s miniature cousin, our Turkey Vulture…maybe 20% flap?  TVs are known to rise up to 20,000 feet in the sky and fly flaplessly for hours in the right conditions with sun-warmed air rising.
