ジョウビタキ

Categories:
  1. IMG_5087.JPG

    Spotted in our neighbourhood: a ジョウビタキ (jōbitaki), or Daurian redstart (Phoenicurus auroreus). Native breeding in East Asia (northeastern China, Mongolia, Korea, and Siberia), they hibernate in southern China and Japan.

    The photo shows a male specimen: a grey crown and nape with lighter forehead and crown-sides, a black face and chin, brownish mantle and wings and a large white wing patch; the chest, lower back and rump are orange, and the tail is black with orange sides (source).

    Distribution: Daurian Redstart (Phoenicurus auroreus) :: xeno-canto (with recordings and sonograms)

    Status: least concern
