The yellow-throated bunting (Emberiza elegans)

Yellow-throated Buntings are widespread across Southeast Asia. Breeding takes place mostly in Russia, China, and North Korea, but birds can also be seen in Japan and Taiwan during the winter. They were unknown in North America until 1998, when a solitary bird was discovered on Attu Island, in the extreme western Aleutian Islands.

A Yellow-throated Bunting's nest is a cup constructed of twigs, grasses, leaves, and other vegetative material, lined with fine grasses, animal hair, and other fine things. Between three and six eggs are deposited, and both parents assist in the incubation process. Incubation takes around 12 days. Typically, they will produce two broods every season.

Certain populations, such as those found in southern China and Korea, are year-round residents. Those that reproduce in the range's northernmost extent, such as those found in Russia, are migratory, making their way to Japan, China, Korea, and Myanmar.
