A DESERT DWELLER
Variable Wheatear is one of the most common species found in Indian Deserts.
It is polymorphic and has three distinct morphs.
1. Black-bellied (‘opistholeuca’).
2. White-bellied (‘picata’)
3. White-crowned (‘capistrata’).
The bird in the photo is White Bellied ( Picata). In our trip we found one White-crowned (‘capistrata’). but could not find a single Black-bellied (‘opistholeuca’.
