INTERESTING FACTS

The Little Bunting was first described by Peter Simon Pallas, a German zoologist and botanist, in 1776.
It is one of the few buntings which doesn't acquire strikingly bright colours, even in the breeding season.
A group of buntings are collectively known as a "decoration", "mural", and "sacrifice" of buntings.

The Little Bunting has a large range, estimated globally at 1,000,000 to 10,000,000 square kilometers. Native to Europe, Asia, and the United States, this bird prefers forest, shrubland, and grassland ecosystems. The global population of this bird is estimated at 10,000,000 to 16,000,000 individuals in Europe alone and does not show signs of decline that would necessitate inclusion on the IUCN Red List. For this reason, the current evaluation status of the Little Bunting is Least Concern.
