Birds of Neyyar Dam: Unknown Bird

I spotted this well camouflaged bird perched on a tree and thanks to my burst mode and superzoom managed to capture it. I have a neat modus operandi for finding out the names of the birds... I have downloaded a list of common birds of Kerala that I subject to Google Images and I find the image that matches mine! Ornithology has become a lot easier with Google Images! But this one got me stumped! Either it is a juvenile or a local variant whose image is yet to be put up on the internet or perhaps the most tantalizing option: Its not a Common bird or perhaps even an undiscovered one! Well I certainly have gone on a flight of fancy! Any clues?
