The adult has a stubby dark bill typical of grain eating birds, brown upperparts and a dark brown head. The underparts are white with dark scale markings. The sexes are similar, although males have darker markings on the underside and a darker throat than females. (Wikipedia)

I initially mistook it for White Wagtail (Masked), but its different. Also a small note that the birds around my house, I observed in January and February 2021 to be around 40 species. I will try to compile the list once. I should also keep observing for different seasons.
