Is this a Common Stonechat or could it be a Siberian Stonechat (Saxicola maurus)?

2021-07-27. Philippe Campeau:

Definitely a Siberian, as a common one would be quite a find. However, our site is based on the Russian (Kazakh) classification and they do not distinguish these species... Hence, you identified it right.

Ah good to know - thanks for the info!
