The red-breasted wheatear (Oenanthe bottae) resembles the larger and darker northern wheatear, but with a duller reddish breast and broader black tail tip. Sexes are alike. It is also known as Botta's wheatear or buff-breasted wheatear. Heuglin's wheatear (O. heuglini) was formerly included in this species but is now usually regarded as a separate species. It is found in Eritrea, Ethiopia, south-west Saudi Arabia and Yemen. Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical high-altitude grassland.
