Plain Prenia

The Plain Prinia, is a small warbler. It is a resident breeder from Pakistan and India to south China and Southeast Asia. It

This skulking passerine bird is typically found in wet lowland grassland, open woodland, scrub and sometimes gardens. The Plain Prinia builds its nest in a shrub or tall grass and lays 3-6 eggs.

These 13–14 cm long warblers have short rounded wings, a longish tail, strong legs and a short black bill. In breeding plumage, adults are grey-brown above, with a short white supercilium and rufous fringes on the closed wings. Under parts are whitish-buff. The sexes are identical.

In winter, the upperparts are a warmer brown, and the under parts more buff. The tail is longer than in summer. There are a number of races differing in plumage shade.

This image is clicked way back in 2007, probably one of the first images as I shifted from digital camera to SLR. That was the time I use to click pictures in JEPG rather than RAW. This picture, although the quality not that good, I could consider it as one of my favorites and indeed a remembrance of my learning curve.
