Northern/Black-eared Wheatear (1 Viewer)

Hi all.

Israel, this week. A female Northern Wheatear, I believe (I've photographed this bird's other angles),
but I wanted to ask if a Black-eared can be ruled out based solely on this particular pov.
Is there a distinct id feature visible in this angle? Perhaps the pale eye-brow (supercilium)?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, but from this angle it’s not easy to age.
