The long-distance flying pied wheatear (Oenanthe pleschanka) male is a boldly marked white-and-black bird – the white crown tinged with brown contrasts with the black face and throat and white rump. The female is browner, and the head is washed with sandy buff. This migratory central Asiatic wheatear occurs from the extreme southeast of Europe to China, and has been found wintering in India and northeastern Africa. It is a very rare vagrant to western Europe.
