European Stonechat (Saxicola rubicola)
One of five sub-species of Stonechats which include an African and a Siberian Stonechat, they were once thought of as a one of the Thrush family but they are now considered an Old World Flycatcher.
This is actually just an excuse for me to point out a group of Thrushes are collectively known either as a "Hermitage" or a "Mutation" of Thrushes. You gotta love that!
I like this fun little bird which sadly, despite its 'green' conservation status is on the decline due to habitat loss.
The photo above shows a male Stonechat in his summer coat.
In this accompanying video, we see a Juvenile and both an adult male and female:
The European Stonechat is a small passerine bird that was formerly classed as a subspecies of the Common Stonechat. Long considered a member of the thrush family Turdidae, genetic evidence has placed it and its relatives in the Old World flycatcher family Muscicapidae.
