  Sonogram of Black-eared Wheatear song

Lardia Valley, Lesvos, Greece  39 13' 40.6" N  26 01' 42.9" E  19 May 2017

Singing from a rocky outcrop above a slope with a dense herb-layer of spiny plants and sparse scrub layer, draining into a larger gorge.

Song composed of short strophes of around one second, comprising a hurried series of dry chirps mixed with slightly more musical upslurred and downslurred elements.
