Bill dusky, paler at base beneath ; irides brown; legs fleshy.
Upper parts dusky olive-brown, the .feathers more or less edged with pale ferruginous, deepest on the margins of the wing-feathers ; beneath and superciliary stripe ferruginous, with narrow brown streaks on the foreneck and breast; chin and throat dull white; tail with its outermost feathers dark, obliquely tipped for its terminal third with ruddy-whitish, which extends up the narrow outer web to near its base ; and the penultimate feather is tipped for about one-quarter of an inch only with the same.
The occurrence of this Pipit within our limits is doubtful, a single specimen only being recorded from the neighbourhood of Ahmednagar.
