Red-headed Bunting (Emberiza bruniceps) is one of many species whose entire global population winters in the Indian Subcontinent.
It breeds largely in Central Asia and winters in western, central and northwestern India although few individuals reach South India every year.
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.
