[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A slim, striking bird, the common redstart (Phoenicurus phoenicurus) has a distinctive bright orange-rufous rump and tail, which are particularly conspicuous in flight and during this species’ characteristic tail-quivering displays. The male common redstart has bluish-grey upperparts, a black throat, and a black face except for a white forehead and a white stripe extending back from above the eyes. The common redstart is usually orange-rufous on the underparts, shading to buff or white on the belly

Hi Zeno,

great, this rain-soaked Redstart you present us. This species is not common where I live, the Black Redstart more so, which is essentially a mountain bird. Thanks. Greetings Dietrich
