Plain Prinia (Prinia inornata)

outskirts of Bangalore, Karnataka, India
Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS and 1.4xII on Canon 1D Mark III
ISO 200, 1/800 @ f9, Manual Exposure using Sekonic L308s Lightmeter
This was photographed from the car. I was coming back to Bangalore and found this on the roadside bushes. I made sure there was no distractions in the background and took this image. That's an important tip in bird photography. Always watch for distracting elements in your frame and see how you can avoid it - either by changing your shooting position and wait for the bird to perch in open.
