Dear Josep,

The videograb actually shows a Northern Wheatear (Oenanthe oenanthe), as the grey mantle, neck and crown show. I am sure there must have been a mix-up during upload of this bird.

Thank you for all your great work enriching the world of ornithology!

You are right in all that you say. The correction will be applied once the transfer to the Macaulay Library is completed.

Best, Josep
