Jungle Babbler (Turdoides striata)

The Jungle Babbler's habitat is forest and cultivation. This species, like most babblers, is non-migratory, and has short rounded wings and a weak flight. The sexes are identical, drably coloured in brownish grey with a yellow-bill making them confusable only with the endemic Yellow-billed Babblers of peninsular India and Sri Lanka. The upperparts are usually slightly darker in shade and there is some mottling on the throat and breast.

Well it was a cool morning of November2011. The sky was full of clouds and the light was too dim when I was at outer of my home town. I located a big flock of Jungle Babblers feeding in the field and they were moving continuously in search of food. It was a bit typical to freeze the actions as the light was not so good but else I captured them only at a speed of 1/60s because of a trick.
