Lusciniola neglectus, Hume.
Murray's Vertebrate Zoology of Sind, p. 150.
HUME'S GRASS WARBLER.
Length, 4 to 4.2 ; expanse, 6.25 to 6.4 ; tail from vent, 1.4 to 1.6 ; wing, barely 2 to 2.15; bill at front, 0.27 to 0.3 ; tarsus, 0.68 to 0.71.
Bill black, paler or horny-greenish in some at base of lower mandible; irides brown ; legs and feet black.
The lores are brownish-white ; a comparatively pure and very narrow white streak from the nostrils over the lores and eyes, but not beyond.
The whole upper surface is dull earthy-brown, with, in some, a faintly olivaceous-rufescent tinge on the back, most conspicuous on the rump; the quills and tail are a moderately dark hair-brown, narrowly margined on the outer webs with pale olivaceous-brown, much the same color as the upper parts ; the secondaries are very narrowly margined at the tips with albescent, tinged with very pale fulvous-fawn, or earthy-brown, more strongly so in some specimens than in others; the sides and flanks are pale earthy-brown ; the wing-lining and axillaries are white, with at times the faintest possible fulvous or brownish tinge'.
Hume's Grass Warbler, according to Murray, is a winter visitant to Sind, chiefly affecting acacia groves.
