How long can vultures fly without flapping their wings?



  1. 0 Votes

    Vultures can soar for indefinite periods without flapping by catching a ride on warm air currents; the turkey vulture has been known to soar for over six hours at a time without flapping. They look for a pocket of warm air, or thermal, and ride it as it rises higher in the atmosphere. When it reaches maximum height, they dive across the sky until they find another.
