THE SIAMESE WHITE-CRESTED LAUGHING-THBUSH.
Garrulax leucolophus diardi, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. i, p. 148.
The Siamese subspecies of White-crested Laughing-Thrush is resident and breeds from South Yunnan into Siam, Cambodia, Annam and Cochin China, extending into Eastern peninsular Siam and Tenasserim and the Malay States.
The only nests and eggs I have seen of this bird are a series very kindly collected for me by Mr. W. A. T. Kellow in “some hills about 20 miles East of Perak.”
The nests were taken in March, April and May, the first containing three eggs taken on the 16th March and three other nests each containing four. The nests are exactly like those of the races already described, as are the eggs.
Twelve eggs average 27.4 x 22.4 mm. : maxima 30.0 x 23.1 and 27.3 x 24.0 mm. ; minima 26.0 x 22.0 and 27.5 x 21.8 mm.
