Dinosaur of the week: White-crowned Black Wheatear

Last December on my trip to Tamanrassset I encountered Oenanthe leucopyga fairly regularly. The IUCN Red List classifies it as Least Concern (https://www.iucnredlist.org/species/22710238/94240236) – with numbers unknown and in the knowledge that the birds feed mainly on insects. In my opinion, we need to be concerned.
