Photo taken from Kottayam, Kerala.
Jungle Babbler is a common bird usually found in large groups. They do not fly very high or long, and are easier to photograph.

Jungle Babbler and Yellow Billed Babbler are almost similar but the latter has whitish heads, and calls are also distinct.

Family: Leiothrichidae
Species: Turdoides striata

Hi Abhinav,great capture of this babbler despite the difficult location,the dot of fire is perfect to take the best detail,great exposure of the difficult backlight too.Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

This is a very noisy bird roaming in large bands.
We had them in our properties in Goa, India.
A face beautifully lit with a direct eye contact.
