[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Male Stonechats (Saxicola torquata), especially in spring are unmistakable, with their tricoloured plumage: black heads, orange breasts and big white blobs on the sides of the neck. The same pattern can just about be seen on females and juveniles but they are brown not black on the head and upper parts and the orange and white areas are much less pronounced. Some such birds may resemble Whinchats, but Stonechats have fatter bodies, shorter wings and longer tails and, above all, they have no eyestripe to break up their generally dark heads.

Felicitari, dar un pic de contrast, lumini nu ar strica fotografia. Fotografia traieste prin ochiul pasarii. M-am chinuit foarte mult cu aceasta specie, dar inca nu am reusit sa fac o poza buna.
