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.

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. La femelle a le dos et la tête beige et est dépourvue de taches blanches sur le cou, la croupe ou le ventre, ces zones étant striées brun foncé beige, la seule tache blanche étant retrouvée sur les ailes et elle est même souvent chamois clair.

Awww. She's pretty! The light in this really enhances the similarity of color between her and the branches.

Stonechat's thin spindly legs never look strong enough to hold them up. Lovely shot!
