This small agile and sturdy bird is Plain Prinia (Prinia inornata). It is also known as Plain Warbler ot White Browed Warbler. This skulking passerine bird is typically found in wet lowland grassland, open woodland, scrub and sometimes gardens. The plain prinia builds its nest in a shrub or tall grass and lays three to six eggs. In winter, the upperparts are a warmer brown, and the underparts more buff. The tail is longer than in summer. Like most warblers, the plain prinia is insectivorous. The song is a repetitive tlee-tlee-tlee.
