It is a male Streaked Weaver, Sibdas ji. Baya usually nests on trees.
Alos, see the breasts - streaks a re visible.
Best,
Suresh

Hi,
 
The bird is a Streaked Weaver (Ploceus manyar) as the black on its face extends right around his neck. In Baya Weaver the black patch is present only on the face and not behind the neck.
 
Cheers,
Pranad Patil
