Winged Jewel : Ashy Crowned Lark

       Ashy Crowned Sparrow Lark  (wiki) is a common bird found in stone areas with sparse scrub, dry cultivation, sandy riverbeds and dry tidal mudflats. Though we have spotted this bird many a times, this trip gave us an opportunity to photograph the bird. Below are some captures of the lark's photo shoot!
