EARTHFLIGHT

Condor Flight School

The largest raptor in the world, Andean condors care for offspring for two 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. EARTHFLIGHT: South America airs Wednesday, September 25 at 8PM ET (check local listings).
