Martin Garner, Yoav Perlman, Yosef Kiat, J. Martin Collinson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Based on a distinctive call, differences in plumage and a preliminary genetic analysis, the Caucasian Water Pipit' Anthus spinoletta coutellii may represent a separate species within the Rock A. petrosus/Water Pipit A. spinoletta complex. The differences between the taxa currently treated as three races of a single species, the Water Pipit A. spinoletta, are described in this short paper.
