THE LARGE TITLARK.

Length, 7.5 ; expanse, 12; tail, 3.25; wing, 3.76; tarsus, 1.05 ; hind-claw, 0.5 ; bill from gape, 0.8.

Very similar to C. rufula, but larger, the markings more distinct, and the breast much more spotted, the general tinge at the same time being more fulvous.

Jerdon gives Central India as one of the localities frequented by the large Titlark.
