Greece's Most Wanted Part VIII: Isabelline Wheatear


Isabelline Wheatears (Oenanthe isabellina) - Αμμοπετροκλης are very rare breeders in Europe, restricted to few areas of Greece, Bulgaria and Romania. In Greece, it can be found in lowlands of Northern Greece and few of the larger Aegean Islands. Despite its scarcity, it can be remarkably easy to see it, sometimes even perching on rooftops, like this one photographed in Evros Delta (It's sitting on tiles, not rocks!).
