better images for female black eared wheatears

Hello all

i am not sure about the shot used in OUPS front page, as the female do not show black on the chin. most probably its for 1st wintering desert wheatear.

but here are some really marvelous images for the female.

Hi Ammadoux

The Opus page shows a perfect female. However in worn plumage (october), when they do show a black chin and ear-coverts. They don't show black in spring. However, I added another picture of a female and a male of the eastern subspecies.

Latest lifer: Plain-bellied Emerald, Brazil (World list 4372)
