This specimen of yellow breasted bunting was collected during Henry Seebohm's first expedition to Siberia. As the specimen was collected from Archangel in Western Siberia, in June 1875, it's impossible that Seebohm collected this himself, as his diary records that he was much further East by then, it was probably collected by another ornithologist and presented to Seebohm on his return to the City later in the year, or perhaps sent through the mail.
