There should be just one Paddyfield Pipit (Anthus rufulus) and no other similar looking pipit right? I'm confirming incase I wrongly identify them. Thanks.

Taken last December, 2020 near wetland, Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo

That's not a pipit - look at its tail. I assume it's striated grassbird.
Oh, I was referring (** IN REFERENCE CHECK AGAINST ) to my separate day of Paddyfield Pipit ID at post (https://www.birdforum.net/threads/not-sure-which-type-pipit-borneo.394390/#post-4060824). ( THAT IS WHY I'M GUESSING IT IS PIPIT IN THE FIRST PLACE **)

Separate time sighted Paddyfield Pipit at different location.

The tail does seems different :unsure: Longer

Here are few more shots of the same bird I posted earlier.

It does looks like as you mentioned, Striated Grassbird

Now I'm not sure what you're actually asking about.
I will happily pass on the pipits.
The pipit-like thing with the long spiky graduated tail is - I assume - as I said, a striated grassbird.

I mean I'm guessing it is Paddyfield Pipit because I was reference to my separate day sighted Paddyfield Pipit. I didn't realize the new one I posted just now could be Striated Grassbird. Sorry about my previous reply confusion.

By looking at its tail as you mentioned, it does looks like Striated Grassbird. I have not seen or photographed this species before. That is why I'm confused with pipit.
