Petchora Pipit

A. gustavi is a small pipit, which somewhat resembles the non-breeding Red-throated Pipit. The species is heavily streaked brown above, with whitish mantle stripes, and with black markings on a white belly and buff breast below. It can be distinguished from Red-throated by its heavier bill, whiter mantle stripes, and contrast between its buff breast and white belly.

The Petchora Pipit is classified as Least Concern. Does not qualify for a more at risk category. Widespread and abundant taxa are included in this category.
