Bar Headed Goose

The highest flying bird species in the world

The bar-headed goose is named for the two conspicuous dark bars running around the back of its white head. Their summer habitat is high-altitude lakes where the bird breeds in summers. The bar-headed goose is able to migrate at altitudes of up to 10,000 metres over the Himalayas. They are known to flying southwards in the winter to northern India and adjacent countries. The bar-headed goose is a primarily herbivorous species, foraging mostly by grazing on land, but also feeding on the water. This species tends to form long-term monogamous pairs (pair for life).
