Spotted Flycatcher [tyrrhenica or balearica]

Muscicapa striata [tyrrhenica or balearica] (= Muscicapa striata tyrrhenica) Schiebel, G 1910

The Mediterranean flycatcher is a small passerine bird in the Old World flycatcher family. It breeds on the Balearic Islands, Corsica and Sardinia, and is migratory, wintering in Africa. The International Ornithologists' Union has split the species from the spotted flycatcher, but other taxonomic authorities considered it still conspecific. Source: Wikipedia
