Phoenicurus ochrurus
Luciano 95

Black redstarts are the only resident passerines of Berlengas. Males have black plumage with a distinctive red-orange tail, while females are less contrasted. The Black redstart is quite common and can be seen throughout Berlenga Island and Farilhões Islets, especially on rocky outcrops, cliffs, and on the few existing buildings.
