Common or Afghan Babbler

Argya [caudata or huttoni] (= Argya caudata) (Dumont, 1823)

The common babbler is a member of the family of Leiothrichidae. They are found in dry open scrub country mainly in India. Two populations are recognized as subspecies and the populations to the west of the Indus river system are now usually treated as a separate species, the Afghan babbler. 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
