(1473) Clamator jacobinus taprobanus Hartert.
THE CEYLON PIED CRESTED CUCKOO.
Clamator jacobinus taprobanus, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. iv, p. 169.
This Cuckoo is found only in Ceylon.
The eggs are generally deposited in the nests of Turdoides griseus striatus. They are, of course, not to be distinguished from those of the typical subspecies, though they average smaller. The eggs have been found from November to June and again in August.
Wait points out that the white of these Cuckoos’ eggs is faintly tinged with green, a character I have also noticed in the eggs of the typical form and in those of C. coromandus.
