THE SIMLA PIGMY WOODPECKER.
Yungipicus hardwickii mitchellii, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. iv, p. 50.
Yungipicus nanus nanus, ibid. vol. viii, p. 672.
This little Woodpecker has been recorded from Kuman, Garhwal and Nepal, and Mackinnon also found it breeding near Mussoorie.
Ail that is recorded of its nests and eggs is a note by R. Thompson that “it lays in April and May, in holes of trees, in the dense forest districts of the Bhabur and the lower Kumaon valleys. The young birds are able to fly in Juno ; four or five in number usually to each old couple,”
The only eggs I know of are three taken by P. Mackinnon below Mussoorie with no data.
These measure 20.0 x 15.7, 20.8 x 15.3 and 19.5 x 15.8 mm.
