SPECIES INFO

Petronia is the name of a genus of sparrows, also known as rock sparrows

There are five species:

  • Yellow-spotted Petronia Petronia pyrgita
  • Chestnut-shouldered Petronia Petronia xanthocollis (also sometimes known as Yellow-throated Sparrow)
  • Yellow-throated Petronia Petronia superciliaris
  • Bush Petronia Petronia dentata
  • Rock Sparrow Petronia petronia

Pale Rockfinch is sometimes referred to as Pale Rock Sparrow; it is, however, in a genus of its own, Carpospiza.
