Collared Pratincole have several sighting and photographed records from Gujarat however, outside Gujarat there are only few records from India, especially from Rajasthan, Punjab and Haryana. They are largely found in the hotter parts of Europe, southwest Asia and Africa. They winter in tropical Africa and some groups migrates to warmer parts of Asia. Other names are Common Pratincole, European Pratincole, Pratincole, Red-winged Pratincole, and Swallow Plover.
