This is a mixed media work of a bar-headed goose near Mysore, Karnataka, India. When bar-headed geese migrate to India, they fly over the Himalayas at very high altitudes. These are the highest flying migratory birds in the world. During its annual migration, this species travels directly over the Himalayas on its route between its nesting grounds and its winter quarters in India. Bar-headed geese have been seen flying well above the peak of Mt. Everest - more than 29,000 feet above sea level. This makes them the highest consisent flier of all bird species.
This handsome goose gets its name from the double bars on its head, with a light grey body and bright orange bill and legs. Males and females are identical.
