Stoliczka's Bushchat, Saxicola macrorhynchus,[note 1] is an Old World flycatcher in the genus Saxicola. It is also known as the White-browed Bushchat. The name is after the discoverer, geologist and explorer Ferdinand Stoliczka.

This desert specialist has a small, declining population because of agricultural intensification and encroachment, which qualifies it as vulnerable.

Stolizkca's Bushchat is found in an area of semi- arid country in north-western India and eastern Pakistan. It has apparently strayed as far east as the Bharatpur area of Rajasthan and as far south as Goa and Pune,[2] with two simultaneous historical records from southern Afghanistan.
