Common Greenshank (Tringa nebularia) breeds across temperate Eurasia and winters throughout Africa, South and Southeast Asia and Australia.
Some birds stay back in their wintering grounds even during summer (without breeding) so patterns of migration are often not as stark and apparent as in some other species.
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.
