Blue Rock-Thrush (Monticola solitarius) breeds across the more southern latitudes of temperate Eurasia and many populations (not all) migrate further south during winter.
Birds that breed in the high Himalayas and further north largely winter in the Indian peninsula. During winter in the peninsula, Blue Rock-Thrush can be seen in any rocky habitat and on human structures and buildings.
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.
