The Corn Bunting is a small bird but large for a bunting. It is prevalent through much of southern and eastern Europe, the Canary Islands, North Africa and through to Central Asia.
Male and female have similar plumage but the male is much larger.
They are usually resident (non-migratory).
The male Corn Bunting will sing from a high perch to declare his territory and is often polygamous.
