SAXICOLA RUBETRA?


Recommended Posts

This is actually a female/immature Saxicola rubicola (European Stonechat). Note the brownish overall, dull orange breast, pale rump, and contrasting blackish tail.

Female/immature Saxicola rubetra (Whinchat) would have paler eyebrows, a more scallopy back pattern, and a much slimmer overall with longer wings.
