[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The ashy-crowned sparrow-lark (Eremopterix griseus) 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.

Background helps a lot to stands out a picture. Here like less distracted, almost out of focus background.

Spot on focus and definition in this sparrow-lark's head and white feathers - as usual, little birds are hard to capture with equal definition throughout with such a long focus lens so the lower chest is a but blurry. is that a monkey behind? it
