In the world 
It has an extremely large range and a population that is suspected to be stable in the absence of evidence for any declines or substantial threats. It is found across temperate and subarctic Asia. It is migratory, wintering in India and other parts of southern Asia. Like other Accentors, this species has an insectivore's fine pointed bill.
Local threats 
Habitat loss and degradation.
