This species has an enigmatic distribution pattern until now. In the first years it was reasonably common for most of the year with peak numbers being in the early Autumn period. It then seemed to disappear except for very brief periods in September and May. Since 2016 it has been common in September/October but then largely disappears as Daurian Shrikes arrived.
