(1742) Cerchneis tinnunculus saturatus Blyth.
THE Burmese KESTREL.
Cerchneis tinnunculus saturatus, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. v. p. 63.
The Burmese Kestrel is found in Northern Burma from the Upper Chindwin to the Shan States and Yunnan, extending South through the hills of Central and Eastern Burma. Grant found a Kestrel breeding in Arakan and a Kestrel of some race also breeds in the Chin Hills which may be either saturatus or interstinctus or intermediate between the two.
We know nothing of its breedings beyond Wardlaw Ramsay’s report that it “is very abundant in Karen-nee, where the rocky precipices afford it good nesting places. It is by no means common in the plains.”
