Weighing that much,it had to develop not to flap its wings

so much,as it would soon get knackered and fall to earth.

and it helps that they live in mountainous regions,so they

can soar on the updrafts.

The only reason they can fly any distance at all is updraughts and thermals. What they have perfected is the ability to locate those 'risers'. But, does it help them in life? One assumes that flying high and long enables them to scan the ground below for carrion to eat.
