The white-browed bush chat (Saxicola macrorhynchus),[note 1] also known as Stoliczka's bushchat, is an Old World flycatcher in the genus Saxicola. The alternative 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.

The white-browed bush chat is found in an area of semi-arid country in north-western India and eastern Pakistan.[2] It has apparently strayed as far east as the Bharatpur area of Rajasthan and as far south as Goa and Pune,[3] with two simultaneous historical records from southern Afghanistan.[2]


Saxicola is masculine leading to the species epithet ending in -us
