According to a new study, it has been revealed that the world's largest soaring bird rides air currents to stay aloft for hours without flapping its wings. The Andean condor has a 3-metre wingspan and weighs up to 15kg, making it the world's heaviest soaring bird. And it is interesting to know that condor is capable of flying more than five hours, covering more than 100 miles without flapping its wings.
