Desert Wheatear

This Desert Wheatear (Oenanthe deserti) is a bird that prefers arid land and this one landed on my ships deck when we were somewhere between the Oman and Pakistani coast. In the subcontinent the bird breeds in Pakistan and Kashmir and during winters it migrates to the south of India all the way until Sri Lanka. Hence the bird is sighted south of Kashmir mostly during winters.Eats insects loves to much on beetles
