The largest raptors in the world, Andean condors care for offspring for 2 years until the young bird is old enough to survive on its own. In this scene from EARTHFLIGHT: South America, a male condor teaches its six-month-old chick to fly in Patagonia. After the male demonstrates, the youngster makes a few attempts before finally taking to the sky.
