IYNGIPICUS KIZUKI.
Iyngipicus kizuki (Temm.), Pl. Col, iv. livr. 99 (1836) ; (id. and Schlegel), Faun. Jap. p. 74, Taf. 37 ; Hargitt, Cat. B. Br. Mus. xviii. p. 318 ; Seebohm, B, Jap. Emp. p. 156 ; I seebohmi Hargitt, Ibis, 1884, p. 100 ; id. tom. cit. p. 319.
Male ad. (Japan). Crown warm ashy brown ; sides of the head, nape, and forepart of the back similar but browner ; upper parts, wings, and middle tail-feathers black, the wings spotted, and the back and scapulars barred with white ; outer tail-feathers buff, barred with black ; malar stripe blackish brown ; lores, a patch behind the eye, and a stripe bordering the malar stripe, chin, throat, and an interrupted collar pure white ; under parts fulvous white, striped with brown ; a small red stripe on each side of the occiput. Culmen 0.65, wing 3.3, tail 22, tarsus 0.6 inch. The female is similar, but lacks the occipital red stripe.
Hab. Japan, Corea, and the Ussuri country in south-eastern Siberia.
It is said to be a resident, and often consorts with Tits ; its cry is described as geed, geed. Specimens from the Ussuri Corea, and Northern Japan (I. seebohmi) are as a rule somewhat greyer on the crown, and have the under parts whiter, but in a series I find these differences by no means constant, and cannot therefore allow even subspecific. rank to this form.
