1727. FaIco subbuteo streichi

(1727) Falco subbuteo streichi Hartert & Neum.
THE CHINESE HOBBY.
Falco subbuteo streichi, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. v, p. 44.
This bird breeds in South China but, though it almost certainly also breeds in the Shan States, its nest has not yet been taken there.
Harington obtained a Hobby in the Ruby Mines district which ho says was not severus, while Livesey and Cock both record Hobbies from the Shan States, and there is a specimen of this race in the British Museum Collection from that country.
La Touche and Rickett obtained it breeding freely in Fokhien from May to July, while Vaughan and Jones obtained eggs near Howlik in June and July. The breeding is the same as that of the other races, the birds laying three or four egga in Crows’ nests very high up.
Twenty eggs average 40.1 x 31.7 mm. : maxima 43.1 x 32.5 and 40.6 x 34.0 mm. ; minima 38.8 x 29.7 and 38.5 x 29.5 mm.
