 Grey-breasted Prinia

The Grey-breasted Prinia (Prinia hodgsonii) is a small warbler. This prinia is a resident breeder in the Indian subcontinent, Sri Lanka and southeast Asia.
This skulking passerine bird is typically found in open woodland, scrub jungle, and other open areas with some grass. Grey-breasted Prinia builds its nest in tall grass and lays 3–4 eggs.
These 11-to-13-centimetre (4 to 5 in) 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 no supercilium, a black eye stripe and orange eyering. They have a rufous wing panel. Grey-breasted Prinia’s underparts are white with a grey breast band. The sexes are identical.[wiki]
