Asian Houbara

The Asian Houbara

Scientific name of species:

(Chlamydotis macqueenii)

Migration and Range Areas

The Asian Houbara population extends from northeast Asia (Mongolia and China) across central Asia, the Middle East and the Arabian Peninsula to reach the Sinai desert.

After the breeding spring season in Central Asia, some Asian Houbara groups migrate southward to spend winter in warmer regions (the Arabian Peninsula, Pakistan, and nearby Southwest Asia). In the early spring, these groups return to their breeding habitats in China, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and other north-eastern provinces.

Some of the Asian Houbara groups live and breed in the southern part of their range areas, particularly in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Yemen and parts of Iran, Pakistan and Turkmenistan.
