Saxicola [rubicola, torquatus, sibilla, albofasciatus, maurus or stejnegeri] (= Saxicola rubicola) (Linnaeus, C 1766)

The African stonechat or common stonechat is a species of the Old World flycatcher family (Muscicapidae), inhabiting sub-Saharan Africa and adjacent regions. Like the other chats, it was long assigned to the thrush family (Turdidae), to which the chats are convergent. Its scientific name refer to its appearance and habitat and means "collared rock-dweller": Saxicola from Latin saxum ("rock") + incola, torquatus, Latin for "collared". Source: Wikipedia
