Buntings are a group of Eurasian and African 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 (American) sparrows. (However, these birds are not closely related to the Old World sparrows which are in the family Passeridae.)

Some emberizids are still named "finches" rather than "buntings". Conversely, there are New World species retaining the name "bunting" which are now classed in the family Cardinalidae. Among those are the painted and indigo buntings.
