About the Andean Condor
The Andean condor has a bald head that will flush (become red) as an emotional response, especially during courting and mating rituals. The male has a comb on the head and a wattled neck. The condor has a hollow bone structure that helps in flight; it can soar as high as 18,000 feet in the air.
