Caspian Stonechat

Magical Moments 2013 #10

1cy female hemprichii Negev 8th Nov 2013 Martin garner 2g

What: female Caspian Stonechat, Saxicola hemprichii 🙂

Who: Yoav Perlman plus Meidad Goren and fellow ringers

Where: Negev desert, Israel

When: 8th November 2013

Why:  The male Caspian Stonechats are increasingly well know. The females are not. Can you identify them in the field? Are they being overlooked? Well I discovered lots about them this year. My favourite moment was finding and debating this one with Yoav and his triumph at proving me wrong :). More on this one to be told later in 2014.
