Grey Breasted Prinia

This Grey breasted Prinia/ Franklin's Prinia (Prinia hodgsonii) can be heard in our home nearly every day. Its only occasionally do I get to see it- It mostly whistles from bushy trees or high up from the tree top. So yesterday, when the incessant rains abated a bit, I ventured out of the house with my gear and lo behold it was a delight to see this lovely Prinia, in the open for a change.  This bird, closely resembles the Ashy prinia sometimes. I generally use the orange-buff underparts of the Ashy prinia to quickly differentiate the two.
