In 1980 the bones of a bird with a wingspan of twenty-five feet were found in Central Argentina. It has been named the “Magnificent Argentine Bird” (Argentavis Magnificens). It is estimated to be about eight million years old. This species is the largest flying bird ever discovered. 

Kenneth E. Campbell, (one of the discoverers), stands in front of a silhouette of the “Magnificent Argentine Bird.” And yes, this is to scale. It is on display at the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles.
