THE EUROPEAN TREE PIPIT.

Length, 6.5; wing, 3.5 ; tail, 2.5; tarsus, 0.8; bill at front, 0.43.

Bill dusky, yellowish at base beneath ; irides dark-brown ; legs pale-brown.

This Pipit is very similar to the last, and a detailed description is therefore unnecessary. The chief points of difference are : the tone of color less deep, less distinctly striated on the body; it is also more tinged with fulvescent on the throat, breast, and under parts generally; and the hind-claw is slightly more curved.

The European Tree Pipit is generally distributed throughout the Presidency during the cold weather,
