[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Ashy Wren Warbler, a small beautiful Bird, very difficult to focus,since it is very very active. I used backlight condition and this was taken at 3pm.
earlier this was called as Ashy wren , now the name is ashy prenia.

This skulking passerine bird is typically found in dry open grassland, open woodland, scrub and sometimes gardens. Ashy Prinia builds its nest in a shrub or tall grass and lays 3-5 eggs.

These 13-14 cm long warblers have short rounded wings, a longish tail, strong legs and a short black bill. In breeding plumage, adults are ash grey above, with no supercilium and a black eye stripe. Underparts are whitish washed with yellow on the flanks. The sexes are identical except that the male has a blacker bill and mouth in the breeding season.
