STATUS
Summer visitor and migrant. 

ABUNDANCE
Uncommon in general.

HABITAT

Sunny areas with open spaces and some shrub cover and/or clumps of trees, like patches of scrub, clearings in pinewoods and Eucalyptus woods, cropland, pastureland, valleys of rivers and streams, etc.

 

SEASONAL BEHAVIOUR
Most stay with us from April to September. 

DISTRIBUTION
Absent or scarce in most of Huelva and Seville. More numerous in C贸rdoba and Ja茅n.

COMMENTS
Its percussive song has won it onomatopoeic local nicknames like capacho, gapacho and especially zumaya, zamaya or azamaya. Sometimes enters towns to hunt moths round streetlights.
