Are we in India? Where?Wednesday



The dutch call this the "Indische Gans" (Indian Goose, known in english as the Bar-Headed Goose). They are native to India, but they do not migrate here. Some are kept in captivity, and there are some breeding escapees throughout Europe.


I don't know if this family is captive or not, but we spotted them right here in The Hague in the Clingendael.

THanks...... I shot them last week in Clingendael as well and was wondering which duck that was. I knew we already hosted the Canadian ones, now the ones India from India!
