Migratory Buntings

The black-headed bunting (Emberiza melanocephala) is a passerine bird in the bunting family Emberizidae. It breeds in south-east Europe east to Iran and migrates in winter mainly to India. Like others in its family, it is found in open grassland habitats where they fly in flocks in search of grains and seed. In winter they move to Asia and large flocks are found in agricultural fields and grasslands.
