Bar-headed Goose

Bar-headed geese are hardy birds. Every spring large flocks of bar-headed geese fly from India through the Himalayan range, above Mount Everest, on their way to their nesting grounds in Tibet. They are capable of flying through the passes of the highest mountains at heights of 3658 to 4267 m (12,000 to 14,000 ft) with winds that blow at speeds of more than 322 kph (200 mph) and temperatures low enough to freeze exposed flesh instantly. At this height, oxygen levels drop by one-third; even kerosene cannot burn there and helicopters cannot fly at that altitude.

Exif: Camera: Canon Canon EOS 6D Mark II; Shutter Speed: 1/2000; Aperture: f/6.3; ISO: 2500; Orientation: 1; Date: 2020:02:10 11:10:16
