Two Bar-headed geese (Anser indicus) are the new inhabitants of the Nature and Animals Protection Center in Dobrich, announced the zoo’s director Hristiyan Hristov. The bar-headed goose, also known as Indian Goose, migrates every year from India to Central Asia across the Himalayas. The couple previously lived in a bird-breeding station. They are still under quarantine.


Nearly 30 bird species live at the Dobrich Zoo, including ostriches, pheasants, ducks, peacocks, owls, emu, etc.
