Black-eared Wheatear

Black-eared Wheatear Oenanthe hispanica
Donana NP, Spain
#2401

This photograph was taken from the car window as we carefully rolled up to it and killed the engine. This was by far the best technique for photographing passerines in the Donana region of Spain. Later in the year these birds bleach out to become almost monochromatic, so I was pleased to find a bird with a lovely peach wash.
