It has been known for many years that bar-headed geese can fly high over the Himalayas.  George Lowe saw them flying over Everest in 1953 during the expedition when the first ascent was made by Hilary and Tensing.

New tracking studies have investigated and confirmed the truth of these amazing reports and have studied the physiology of these geese in detail.  The study has recently been published in the Journal Science.
