Bar-headed Goose

Anser indicus
Birds have a special respiratory system that allows them to take in more oxygen than other animals, which is an adaptation for flying. The highest flying bird, the bar-headed goose, has the best respiratory system of any bird. Each year, flocks of bar-headed geese fly over Mt. Everest, making the best use of what little oxygen remains at such high altitude.
