Ashy Prinia
Spotted this bird sitting on the branch of a dry tree in the suburbs of Mumbai. The place is called Bhandup Pumping Station. It is a sewage treatment area - full of odor. But it attracts many birds and photographers too. The place The tree was dry - with almost no leaves. That allowed for good lighting The tree behind was lush and provided a good background too. The bird had noticed me and was looking straight towards me - might be evaluating if I am dangerous or harmless. It flew off in some time. But did give me a couple of interesting shots.
