Bar Headed Geese with a Mongolian Band
Wildlife Science and Conservation Center of Mongolia follows unique conservation methods like banding.
The band consists of details like:
The bar-headed goose is a goose that breeds in Central Asia in colonies of thousands near mountain lakes and winters in South Asia, as far south as peninsular India. It lays three to eight eggs at a time in a ground nest. It is known for the extreme altitudes it reaches when migrating across the Himalayas.
It's breeding grounds include Central Mongolia and Tibet. There is even documentation of the species breeding in Ladakh, India.
Conservation status: least concerned.
At Hadinaru in Karnataka the Birds are found in winters which is their migratory season.
