Second image from Haryana in December is a Long-billed Pipit.

Thanks so much for flagging this up Grahame.

I've been searching for a replacement image. As I wouldn't know a Tawny (nor Long-billed if it comes to that) .... even if they bit me on the nose LOL.... what do you think about this one:

Do they actually have a different plumage in winter? I'm presuming this one is subspecies campestris?

That is a lovely image of a Tawny Pipit Delia and a very suitable replacement.

To answer your queries, no differences in winter but subtle differences depending on age i.e juvenile, 1st-w & adult. I do not know which taxonomy you follow but both IOC and HBW follow Alstrom (2003) in treating Tawny Pipit as monotypic on the basis that geographical differences do exist but are too slight and inconsistent to justify recognition as different subspecies.

Many thanks again Grahame.

As for the taxonomy we use a consensus system which you can read more about here: https://www.birdforum.net/opus/Editi...icles#Taxonomy, though that may change in the future, as it's getting very complicated entailing a lot of work to keep updated.

I'll switch the pictures over shortly.

Cheers lad.
