    Greater short toed lark or Sykes short toed lark?India

    Near Pune, Maharashtra, India. Dec 2020 Found in grasslands in a large flock of 100 or so. Was lighter in colour than the regular sykes. But is not that common this south. I think this is greater short toed. What do you guys think?

    Birds from Nilgiris, South India

    Thanks mate. Same conundrum here. Tickell's Thrush does exist in that region but generally is a winter migrant. Also the bluish wash under wing was a bit confusing. Thanks for trying.

    3 birds from the himalayas

    Thanks both. My first impression of the falcon was that it looked bigger than a Kestrel, but it flew away so fast that, that photo was all that I got of it. But when I looked at the photo I thought Kestrel.
