  • The bird called stone-chaker appears in this passage cited under craker in Dr. Jamieson's Scottish Dictionary and Supplement: "The land-fowls produced here are extraordinary good, eagles, plovers, crows, wrens, stone-chaker, craker, cuckoo." --Martin's Voyage to St. Kilda. London, 1753, p. 26. Also the 1st ed., 1698.

    One surmises that stone-chaker referred to a stonechat.
