An adult Andean condor (Vultur gryphus) soars in the air currents next to a cliff above the Rio Nireguao O Coichel in northern Patagonia. The condor is the largest flying bird in the world, feasting primarily on carrion. It has near threatened status. The snow-covered mountains on the Chile-Argentina border can be seen in the background.
