Bar-headed Goose

posted in: Birds, British Columbia | 0

While on vacation on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada we spotted a bar-headed goose at the Esquimalt Lagoon.  What an amazing place to go and watch water birds.

Through some research we found out this bird was just passing through.  It breeds in central Asia so how it got to Vancouver Island is a mystery.

It was in with a large flock of Canada Geese and swans at the lagoon.

It was a wonderful lens friend and did a lot of posing for us.  This bird was spotted on our July 2008 trip.
