THE GREY-THROATED BABBLER.
Length, 5.5 ; wing, 2.5 ; tail, 3.4; tarsus, 1.
Bill horny or fleshy-brown; legs pale fleshy-brown.
Forehead, upper part of lores and streak over the eyes deep reddish-brown, each feather streaked with ashy-grey; crown and occiput deep ferruginous; cheeks and ear-coverts paler ferruginous ; sides of neck yellowish-rusty ; nape, back, scapulars, rump, and upper tail-coverts, bright rusty-ferruginous, in some lights slightly brownish and most rusty on upper tail-coverts, almost entire visible portion of closed wing bright ferruginous-chesnut, rest of feathers hair-brown ; tail moderately dark-brown, feathers margined strongly on outer webs with ferruginous and most broadly so towards their bases ; chin, throat, and upper breast pale brownish-grey or ashy, rest of lower parts dull rusty, browner and lighter on lower breast, brighter and more ferruginous on flanks and lower tail-coverts.
The Grey-throated Babbler is a rather doubtful species. Within our limits it has only been procured in Sind, where doubtless it is a permanent resident.
