Buntings are a group of mainly European passerine birds of the family Emberizidae.

They are seed-eating birds with stubby, conical bills, and are the Old World equivalents of the species known in North America as sparrows. (However, these birds are not closely related to the Old World sparrows which are in the family Passeridae.)

Their habits are similar to those of finches, with which they sometimes used to be grouped. Some emberizids are still named "finches". Similarly, there are a few species named "buntings" which are now classed in the cardinal family, like the Painted Bunting and Indigo Bunting.
