Records of Eastern Yellow Wagtail Motacilla tschutschensis tschutschensis and M. t. taivana from India

On 31-OCT-2016, @paragkokane and @amolkokane saw a yellow wagtail on Neil Island Andaman, INDIA, which was photographed assuming it was M. flava. It had a prominent broad yellowish supercilium, a yellow throat with white sides, buffish underparts with yellow restricted to regions near the belly, and some indistinct mottling on the breast. After some research, the individual was identified as M. t. taivana.

The research paper on the same was published in the same year. It can be found below:
