[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I found this bird on the meadow near my residence. It prefers the part where there is marshy thicket. I could not identify the bird. By the size & shape it looked like a pipit but then the eyebrow was unsettling.

I leave it for the experts, again.

PS: It eventually was identified as a dusky thrush!
I am indebted to Tom & Nigel for the correct identification of the bird!

good angle. i love the birds pose. I also feel there is a few percentage of distraction around the beak of the bird. May be because the background is blurred sumwhat. good work. tfs.

Hi Subhayan
looks like a Dusky thrush Turdus eunomus, slightly oof and difficult light, nice bird though

I agree with Tom - Dusky Thrush. Many references still group this with Naumann's Thrush, T. naumannii, but in any case this one looks like a classic male "Dusky." Not your best photograph, but worth posting (and good enough) to get a confirmation of identification.
Best wishes, Nigel.
