Cinereous Tit

The Cinereous Tit (Parus cinereus) is a species of bird in the tit family Paridae. This species is made up of several populations that were earlier treated as subspecies of the Great Tit (Parus major). These birds are grey backed with white undersides. The Great Tit in the new sense is distinguishable by the greenish-back and yellowish underside.This distribution of this species extends from parts of West Asia across South Asia and into Southeast Asia.[wiki]

Scaly-breasted Munia

The scaly-breasted munia (Lonchura punctulata), also known as the nutmeg mannikin or spice finch, is a small bird with a very distinctive appearance. It has a bright cinnamon head and neck, with duller brown plumage on the back and wings. The underside of the scaly-breasted munia is mainly white, although each feather on the breast has a brown edge, creating the scale-like pattern for which this species is named.The pointed tail is a yellowish-brown.Male and female scaly-breasted munias are similar in appearance,and the juvenile is cinnamon on the upper-parts and paler on the underparts.[arkive.org]

Crested honey-buzzard

buzzard1 (Custom)Crested honey-buzzard

Despite superficially resembling a buzzard,the Oriental honey-buzzard,like the European honey-buzzard,is actually a large but slender species of kite The colour and pattern of its plumage varies extraordinarily across its range with six subspecies differing markedly in appearance.All the subspecies are generally greyish-brown above and have a grey head, but the colour of the under body ranges from cream to blackish-brown and tends to be either blotched, mottled or streaked.Furthermore, the length of the hindcrown feathers varies considerably with some subspecies having a distinct crest. Extraordinarily, the distinct plumage of each subspecies closely resembles that of a species of hawk-eagle that overlaps its range. It is argued that this mimicry evolved to prevent the relatively weak honey-buzzard from being attacked by more powerful raptors.[arkive.org]
