Indian Golden Oriole (Oriolus kundoo) breeds in most of India (except South India) and Central Asia. During winter, all populations migrate down to the peninsula.
In South India, the species is abundant during winter. Some populations of this remarkably beautiful species remain in the south during summer but evidence of breeding is still lacking.
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.
