Bar-headed Goose

This is a bar-headed goose.  It lives in Asia.  It is sometimes seen in other parts of the world, though, because they have been brought into zoos and animal parks and sometimes they escape. I saw it at SeaWorld near the Turtle Point exhibit.  They were in a cage with Caribbean flamingos.

The bar-headed goose is one of the highest flying birds in the world, because it migrates over the Himalayas, which are the world’s tallest mountains.  They sometimes fly right over Mount Everest, which is the tallest mountain in the world.  They live in the summer in Tibet and in the winter they migrate to India.  The trip is 1000 miles, and they can sometimes fly the whole trip in one day.  They are very fast fliers, and they wait for strong mountain tailwinds to help push them along.

Here is our first game on Raymie’s Zoo!  It is a look-and-find.

Find 2 bar-headed geese in the picture above.  Then find 3 Caribbean flamingos.
