The Bluethroat subspecies Cyanecula svecica svecia occurs throughout the northern Palearctic. European C. s. svecia has been shown to follow a route west of the Himalaya to winter quarters in southern Asia. Out of 30 Bluethroats tagged with geolocators in eastern Siberia, we obtained one track suggesting that it migrated east of the Himalaya to a wintering area located in Myanmar. The different routes of western and eastern C. s. svecia implicate the presence of a migratory divide in Siberia, either formed in situ during the post-glacial colonization process or resulting from a secondary contact between different refuge populations.
