Where do the Russian birds migrate for the winter?

Russia is, of course, still home to a great variety of non-migratory birds, such as the gray partridge. In the steppe areas of the south, the partridges are almost settled. However, in the event of deep snow covering their winter feed, even these birds are forced to migrate to Central Asia, Ciscaucasia, or southern Ukraine.
