|Black nest of collalba. Fauna of the National Park of Sierra Nevada, Granada, Andalucia, Spain. The black Collalba is greatest of the three collalbas that reproduces in the Iberian Peninsula and also easiest to identify. The plumage of the body and the wings are totally black brilliant and obispillo or rabadilla, the pens underneath the birth of the tail and the rectrices of this one are of white color, except the ends of each rectriz that are black and that form very visible a terminal band when the bird unfolds the tail, which does frequently. The central pair of rectrices is black from the end to half of its length. The wings from distant spot seem black but in fact they are brown very dark and when the bird flies over to us with unfolded them, then a grayish tone is appraised well.|
