Braggart of Bharatpur: Bar-headed Goose

Updated: Mar 27, 2023


This Bar-headed Goose (Anser indicus) is a high-flyer in every sense of the word. There are anecdotes of this bird seen flying above Mt Everest. Their high altitude flying skills during trans-Himalayan migration is a matter of intense research. The highest height recorded so far is around 23920 feet which, in itself, is no mean feat.
