Squatarola squatarola.

Squatarola squatarola.

Key to Subspecies.

A. Rather more brown, less grey. Slightly larger…………S. s. squatarola, p. 156.
B. Rather more grey, less brown. Slightly smaller…………S, s. hypomela, p. 157.

The differences between the two races is very slight and perhaps hardly worth recognizing subspecifically. In Winter plumage, however, the colour of the upper parts in the Eastern birds certainly seems more grey.
