The brown rock chat (Oenanthe fusca) or Indian chat is plain chocolate-brown and is often found on old buildings and rocky areas. It resembles a female Indian robin but lacks the reddish vent and differs in posture and behaviour apart from being larger. The upper body is predominantly light brown with hints of grey, while its underparts display a paler shade of brownish-white. It feeds mainly on insects, picked off the ground. Nearly endemic to India, its distribution extends into northern Pakistan west to the Chenab River.
