Asian Brown Flycatcher (Muscicapa dauurica) is an intriguing species that breeds in temperate habitats in Mongolia and East Asia but also patchily across South Asia in suitable habitat.
Northern populations migrate south primarily to Southern India and South-East Asia. Populations that breed in South Asia also potentially migrate further south to South India.
This animated migration map was created from observations uploaded to the citizen science platform eBird up until 2020. Where present, the inset graph depicts the seasonal likelihood of finding this species (i.e. the proportion of eBird checklists) within its range in India alone. We are grateful to the many birdwatchers around the world who have enabled the creation of this animation by sharing their observations on eBird.
