White-crowned Black Wheatear
أبلق أسود أبيض التاج
Black plumage; white rump; mostly white tail. Unlike other wheatears, the female is similar to the male. Most adults have white crowns. Juveniles and some adults have black crowns (distinguished from the black morph of the mourning wheatear by their white rump and habitat).
Mimics calls of other birds.
Black wheatears feed mainly on insects and occasionally on scorpions.
Common in arid, rocky areas of western Jordan, including Wadi Mujib, Petra, and Wadi Rum.
