[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Plain Prinia, or the Plain, or White-browed, Wren-Warbler (Prinia inornata) is a small warbler in the cisticola family. It is a resident breeder from Pakistan and India to south China and southeast Asia.

This passerine bird is typically found in wet lowland grassland, open woodland, scrub and sometimes gardens. The Plain Prinia builds its nest in a shrub or tall grass and lays 3-6 eggs. The sexes are identical.

In breeding plumage, adults are grey-brown above, with a short white supercilium and rufous fringes on the closed wings. Underparts are whitish-buff. In winter, the upperparts are a warmer brown, and the underparts more buff. Like most warblers, the Plain Prinia is insectivorous
