Thanks again, Tom- and also Ted, Kenny, and Don.
I just did some additional research, and the kori bustard might well be the correct answer.
Other seemingly authoritative sources gave different answers.
I guess it depends on a couple of measuring criteria:
1. Males only?
2. Males and females averaged?
3. Biggest single bird weighed?
4. How many constitute a reliable sampling number?
My final opinion is this. I don't know .
But IMO the contenders are kori bustard, great bustard, trumpeter swan, Andean condor and the Dalmatian white pelican.
The weight? Too many variables for me to state a strong opinion- but somewhere around 40 lbs (plus or minus).
