The MALAY YELLOW-BREASTED SUNBIRD.
Leptocoma ornata ornata. Fauna B.I., Birds, 2nd ed, vol. iii, p. 401 (part.), Leptocoma ornata heliobleta Oberholser, Journ. Wash. Acad. Sci. vol. xiii (2), p. 230, 1923.
This form of Yellow-breasted Sunbird is found in Tenasserim and the Malay States.
There is no record of the breeding of this Sunbird, but Kuschel received two clutches of eggs from the Federated Malay States, of which he sent me one of three.
These eggs are exactly like a pair of eggs I possess of the preceding race—a pale sienna ground with darker clouds of brown and secondary clouds of sienna-grey, with a few deeper spots of very dark brown.
They measure 15.5 x 11.3, 15.2 x 11.2 and 14.8 x 11.1 mm.
