Ashy-crowned Sparrow-Lark

Eremopterix griseus (Scopoli, 1786)

The Ashy-crowned Sparrow-Lark (Eremopterix griseus) also known as the Ashy-crowned Finch-lark or Black-bellied Finch-lark is a small sparrow sized member of the lark family. It is found in the plains in open land with bare ground, grass and scrub across South Asia. The males are well marked with a contrasting black-and-white face pattern, while females are sandy brown, looking similar to a female sparrow. Males are easily detected during the breeding season by the long descending whistle that accompanies their undulating and dive-bombing flight displays. Source: Wikipedia
