eastern or western black eared wheatear (1 Viewer)


Well-known member

use to think that we only get the eastern ones, but i am a bit confused with this one.


thanks for the help.

There are no records of Western Black-eared Wheatear in the OSME Region, Ammadoux. I'm not sure of the reason for your confusion, but both Eastern and Western have colour morphs with or without the black chin.
