The European Stonechat (Saxicola rubicola) 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.
The etymology of the English name derives from its call, sounding like two stones knocked together. The scientific name Saxicola means "rock-dweller", from Latin saxum, a rock + incola, dwelling in; and rubicola, "bramble-dweller", from Latin Rubus, brambles + incola; the subspecies name hibernans refers to Ireland (Latin, Hibernia).

Le Tarier pâtre (Saxicola rubicola) est une espèce de passereau appartenant à la famille des Muscicapidae. Le mâle est aisément reconnaissable avec le fort contraste de sa tête noire, son collier blanc et son poitrail orange vif à roux.
