- Oenanthe monacha
White crown and belly, black face, back and throat. The tail and rump are white with black central tail feathers.
The female is brown, becoming somewhat paler below.
Thinly vegetated desert with or without scattered shrubs. Often found in hotter, more arid sites than other wheatears.
Hooded Wheatear feeds on insects, often taken in the air. Its call is a whistled vit, and the song is a harsh chattering. The nest is built in a rock crevice, and 3-6 eggs is the normal clutch.
