Observation details

Refer photo. Was seen foraging on the ground in a group of about four individuals. After a while, one pair was seen to move to a slight elevation and started calling. Was too excited to record the call. interesting to note that the call did not match with the those in xeno-canto, which I referred later in the day. Learnt that this species had previously recorded from the state in the pre-independence era. Three samples have been collected from the state. One was from Ooty, One from Madras and the other was from Coimbatore. Size was slightly bigger than a lark.
