I moved series to unidentified birds

2020-07-17. Pavel Parkhaev:

I suppose tha it can be Indian Bush Lark - Mirafra erythroptera

2020-09-01. Dr.Jayaprakash V:

Thanks Pavel, for the input.
Going by the distribution, Indian Bush lark is seen in north-western, central and south-central India while this bird was photographed in South India. I am wondering if this is the female of Ashy_crowned Sparrow Lark..
