Stonechat; Tarabilla Común

Saxicola rubicola


Until recently the Stonechats were all considered as one species with numerous sub-species (races). After much discussion over several years the following change has been made:-
Stonechat (Saxicola torquatus) is split into three species, European Stonechat (Saxicola rubicola), Siberian Stonechat (Saxicola maurus), and African Stonechat (Saxicola torquatus), based on a series of phylogenetic analyses of DNA sequence data (reviewed by Sangster et al. 2011).
