One of the most elusive bird, atleast in my case, have always observed them in flight and disappearing in the thicket of the trees, rarely spotting them in close range and documenting them. Luckily though, spotted one such beauty fly past me, almost making me feel like a missed opportunity, but after traversing in the direction of the flight, eventually spotted a couple of them pecking along the grassy area, almost poking out insects from the ground and feasting on it. The colour of the beauty and the dried foliage of the surroundings almost made it blend into it making it too difficult to spot and frame them. And despite keeping ample distance form it, these alert birds would still realize my presence and fly off far away, again making it difficult to spot them.
