Black Redstart

Phoenicurus ochruros


The adult male is overall dark grey to black on the upperparts and with a black breast; the lower rump and tail are orange-red, with the two central tail feathers dark red-brown. The belly and undertail are either blackish-grey (western subspecies). I think the first three pics are of a juvenile. The last two are adults.


It is a widespread breeder in south and central Europe and Asia and northwest Africa. It nests in crevices or holes in buildings.
