Although you are half a world away, I saw this picture and knew it was a pipit because it looks so much like our two pipits.

Great shots Tabib, Pipits are difficult to approach. Surely the pipits take lots of insects for which the farmers (and us) should be grateful?

Beautiful details in this bird and how wonderful to capture it in flight. Very good photos.
