THE SUMATRAN BLUE FLYCATCHER.
Cyornis tickellioe sumatrensis, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. ii, p. 235.
Muscicapula tickellioe sumatrensis, ibid. vol. viii, p. 628.
Robinson and Kinnear do not admit the occurrence of this Flycatcher within our limits, though they say that it is very common on the Eastern side of peninsular Siam and occurs over the greater portion of Siam and the Indo-Chinese countries. The birds obtained by Partridge at Ye, in Tenasserim, were undoubtedly of the Southern race, and I have little doubt that the single bird obtained by Cook in Karenni was the same.
The nest taken by Partridge was a deep moss nest, lined with roots, said to have been taken from a hollow in a low moss-covered stump standing in a ravine in evergreen forest.
The three eggs were broken in transit to India but were just like those of the preceding bird. They were taken on the 13th April.
