About the Bar-headed Goose
This mid-sized goose can be recognized by its orange bill and legs, light grey body, and by its namesake black bars on the back of the head. Bar-headed Geese feed mostly on plant material, including grasses, leaves, roots, and stems. They will also feed on small water animals and insects.
Bar-headed Geese are famous for their high-altitude flight. They migrate between breeding grounds on high altitude lakes and their wintering grounds. They have been recorded flying over the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, which is over 29,000 feet!
