Eurasian Wryneck (Jynx torquilla) is an odd looking woodpecker that breeds across temperate Eurasia and migrates largely to the African and Asian tropics for the winter.
During winter, this bird can be seen in any open habitat with scattered trees across the Indian Subcontinent, often foraging near the ground.
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.
