Black Redstart (Rougequeue) Phoenicurus ochruros
Bagà, Catalonia, Spain
One of the species we could count on seeing every day during our week in Bagà was Black Redstart. Each morning, when I went down to the stream which flows through the village, one would be perched on the wall.
This bird appears to be either a female or a juvenile.
No doubt the surrounding Pyrenees provide the natural habitat it favours, with lots of rocky areas for it to nest, but this species has adapted well to human settlement, especially towns and cities with old buildings, ruins, church towers, abandoned industrial areas and so on. Bagà provides a good deal of suitable habitat, much to the bird's liking I am sure.
