SPECIES INFO

Stoliczka's Bushchat, Saxicola macrorhynchus,[note 1] is an Old World flycatcher in the genus Saxicola. It is also known as the White-browed Bushchat. The name is after the discoverer, geologist and explorer Ferdinand Stoliczka.

This desert specialist has a small, declining population because of agricultural intensification and encroachment, which qualifies it as vulnerable.

Stolizkca's Bushchat is found in an area of semi- arid country in north-western India and eastern Pakistan. It has apparently strayed as far east as the Bharatpur area of Rajasthan and as far south as Goa and Pune, with two simultaneous historical records from southern Afghanistan.

Notes
  1. ^ Saxicola is masculine leading to the species epithet ending in -us
