Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Jaunty little terrestrial songbird of plains, agricultural fields, and semi-desert, where often perches prominently on utility wires and boulders. Tuxedoed breeding male unmistakable: black with snow-white crown, belly, and rump. Breeding female lacks the white crown and is mostly gray-brown but is otherwise similar in pattern. Nonbreeding adult and immature have sandy underparts and pale fringes to the wing feathers, producing a worn, scaly look.
