235. Chrysomma sinensis saturatior

(235) Chrysomma sinensis saturatior Ticehurst.
THE BHUTAN YELLOW-EYED BABBLER.
Pyctorhis sinensis saturatior, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. i, p. 234.
Chrysomma sinensis saturatior, ibid. vol. viii, p. 602.
Again quoting Ticehurst, the range of this subspecies is “Bhutan Doars, Nepal, Sikkim, Bhutan and Buxa Doars.”
When ‘Nests and Eggs’ was rewritten by Oates the nest of this race had not been taken. Since then the only clutch I can trace is one taken by A. M. Primrose at Kurseong, in the Darjiling District, at about 5,000 feet, which is probably quite an exceptional elevation.
This clutch of four eggs, is of the salmon-coloured, blotched and clouded type and the eggs measure 20.3 x 16.5, 20.0 x 15.4, 20.1 x 16.6 and 19.8 x 15.8 mm.
They were taken on the 17th May from a nest in a small bush in grass-land.
