(1688) Athene noctua ludlowi Stuart Baker.
THE TIBETAN LITTLE OWL.
Athene noctua ludlowi, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. iv. p. 443.
So far as is recorded at present this Little Owl has only occurred in Tibet and the Mishmi Hilla.
All that is known of its habits is noted by Ludlow, who writes (Ibis, 1928, p. 212):—“This little Owl is not uncommon throughout the year at all elevations between Gyantse and Phari. It may bo seen sunning itself in Winter on the walla of ruined buildings, which are so plentiful in this country."
Two eggs sent to me from Gyantse were taken from a hole under the eaves of an inhabited Tibetan house on the 9th May at an elevation of some 12,500 feet.
The two eggs measure 37.9 x 29.0 and 36.6 x 28.8 mm.
