Cathartes, turkey buzzards, Sarcorhamphus gryphus, condor Gypagus papa, king vulture.
The condor, which inhabits the higher Cordilleras, is peculiar to the whole Andean region, and is the largest of the Raptores.
The Raptores are well represented by a large number of genera and species, which include the condor, eagle, vulture, falcon, hawk and owl.
The Chilean slopes of the Andes appear to be a favourite haunt of the condor, where neighbouring stock-raisers suffer severe losses at times from its attacks.
By preference the condor feeds on carrion, but it does not hesitate to attack sheep, goats and deer, and for this reason it is hunted down by the shepherds, who, it is said, train their dogs to look up and bark at the condors as they fly overhead.
