THE BELGAUM PLAIN-COLOURED FLOWER-PECKER.
Dicoeum minullum subflavum, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. iii, p. 430.
Dicoeum concolor subflavum, ibid. vol. viii, p. 607.
This subspecies is found North of the area occupied by the pre¬ceding bird from Belgaum to Khandala and Mahabaleshwar and thence East into the Central Provinces.
A nest sent me from Belgaum was exactly like all those I have seen of the Nilgiri bird and contained two eggs measuring 14.0 x 10.6 and 14.8 x 10.7 mm. The nest was said to have been suspended from an outer twig of an Acacia at about 20 feet from the ground, one of several trees growing on a roadside. It was taken on the 17th February.
