Unmodified mobile phone recording of a bird's call/song.

Observation details

The bird was small (about 15 cm) with whitish underparts, brownish/olive upper parts ( I could be wrong here), short beak and a short tail. It was slightly plump, much like a juvenile. It was in a broad leaved shrub tree, about 15 feet above the ground and was jumping from branch to branch (rather slowly!), vocalizing all the time. Initially, I thought it was a juvenile tailor bird. However, as it flew to the neighboring tree, it was quite unlike a tailor bird. Confirmed as a puff-throated babbler with the call (Xeno-Canto)
