european stonechat

i like stonechats (aka, cartaxo comum). they prefer to perch on top of things, making them super easy to spot and photograph. plus, their colors are quite striking (at least the males), so they easily stand out from other birds. they’re so common here.

the females are a little bit less showy, more muted in their colors, but still easy enough to spot, high on a fence or stick.

we rarely noticed them before we started birdwatching, but once you start looking (really looking), they’re everywhere!
