THE RING-NECKED SHRIKE-BABBLER.

Gampsorhynchus torquatus Hume, P. A, S. B., 1874, p. 107 (Young-zalin River); Blanf. & Oates, i, p. 186.

Vernacular names. None recorded.

Description. Diners from G. r. rufulus in having the upper plumage rufous-brown; the outer webs of the first primaries and the tips of all horny-grey; the tail is edged and tipped with white instead of buff and the sides of the neck are marked with rufous and black.

Colours of soft parts as in the last bird, but the legs are described as " greyish white, slaty white or fleshy white with a blue tinge."

Measurements as in White-headed Shrike-Babbler.

Distribution. The Toungoo Hills and Karenni to Tenasserim.

Nidification unknown.

Habits do not seem to differ from those of the White-headed Shrike-Babbler. Davison procured them both in bamboo and evergreen forest.
