Andy the Andean Condor



Back in November on our field trip to Tracy Aviary, Lily took a video of Andy, the Andean Condor.   He is a really cool bird, and the girls loved learning about him and others like him.  It's been almost 2 months since our trip to see Andy, but since I was blogging about him, I thought I'd ask the girls today what they learned to see what they remembered about Andy.

Me: "Lily, what was your favorite thing you learned about condors?"
Lily: "When they're a baby, they can fit in the palm of an adult's hand, but when they grow up, they're huge and weigh as much as Amara (36.8 pounds)!"

 Me: "Amara what was your favorite thing you learned about Andy the Condor?"
Amara: "I like how his wingspan is big!  It's like, bigger than dad!"
