Afghan Babbler

Argya huttoni (Blyth, 1847)

The Common Babbler (Turdoides caudata) is a member of the Leiothrichidae family. They are found in dry open scrub countries in Asia mainly in India and extending west to Iran. Several populations are recognized as subspecies and the populations to the west of the Indus river system are sometimes treated as a separate species, the Afghan Babbler (Turdoides huttoni). The species is distinctly long-tailed, slim with an overall brown or greyish colour, streaked on the upper plumage and having a distinctive whitish throat. Source: Wikipedia
