    Nice Image Rajan saab.The eye contact, details and pose are Grt. BG is super.
    Looks like a lark to me.Closest i can get to is Indian bush lark. Not sure though.Larks are a tough lot to ID without a feild guide.

    Bill looks like that of Ashy crowned sparrow lark's (female). Since the image was from Marudhamalai (foot hills of W.Ghats) I suppose it is Ashy crowned sparrow lark.

    Lovely pose and eye contact. The clean background adds to the image. Nice details. Wish the perch was natural. Thanks for sharing.

    Ashy crowned sparrow lark is different.This seems to be a bush lark.

    Could be jerdons as well. Kazmierczak feild guide says the shorter tail is indicative of jerdons. also the location seems to favour that. but jerdons generally show a lot more Rofous on the wing while perched.
