Can vultures fly for hours without flapping your wings?

    No, vultures usually have to flap their own wings to fly, not mine (I’m teasing). Once vultures get into the air, if they aren’t flying to get somewhere, they like to find thermals. Thermals are pockets of warm air that are rising up from the ground. Once they hit these thermals, they can simply glide along, supported by the warm air rising up under their wings. They will eventually have to flap their wings in order to find more thermals, but because they use the thermals to their advantage, they can fly for hours because they’re not wasting energy flying without the thermals.
