The choughs breed in mountains from Morocco and Spain eastwards through southern Europe and the Alps across Central Asia and the Himalayas as far as theTibetan Plateau. The Alpine Chough is also found in Corsica and Crete, and the Red-billed Chough has populations in Ireland, the UK, the Isle of Man, and two areas of the Ethiopian Highlands. Both species are non-migratory residents throughout their range, only occasionally wandering to neighbouring countries
