Richard's pipit (Anthus richardi) is named after French naturalist Richard de Lunéville (1745–1835) – better known as Charles Richard – who identified it as a separate species of pipit in 1818. A slender bird that often stands very upright, it is a rare find in parts of Europe. It breeds in southern Siberia, Mongolia, and in parts of China and Central Asia. Winters in the Indian subcontinent and southeast Asia. a bird of open country, particularly flat lowland areas, it inhabits grassland, steppe and cultivated land, preferring more fertile, moist habitats. In Europe it is most often recorded on headlands and islands.
