What bird flies the highest?
A Rüppell's Griffon is the highest flying birdhttp://www.nbrhblog.com/2011/03/highest-flying-bird.htmlhttp://www.birdwatchersgeneralstore.com/VulturePlane.htm~~The bar-headed goose also flies pretty darn high (not as high as the vulture listed above)-- they can scale the Himalayashttp://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2011/06/110610-highest-flying-birds-geese-himalaya-mountains-animals/
great question. i'm thinking something in the falcon family.quick research said the bar-headed goose :) i've never seen one.
Turkey vulture, soars at 10,000 ft.1was said to be seen at 30,000 ft. Maybe yes, maybe no. It's extremely cold at that altitude.
