(135) Garrulax moniligera fuscata Stuart Baker.
THE BURMESE NECKLACED LAUGHING-THRUSH.
Garrulax moniliger fuscata Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. i, p. 15.
This race is found from Central Burma to the South of Tenasserim and South-West Siam.
Oates found the Burmese Necklaced Laughing-Thrush breeding in Pegu in April and more often in July. The nest he describes as being made of dead leaves and small branches, lined with fine twigs, in shape a massive cup, placed in small saplings within reach of the hand. Bingham found them breeding in the same district of Lower Burma in March and April, whilst Hopwood and Mackenzie took nests in April, May and June. They all agree that the nests are just like those of the preceding bird, bamboo-leaves forming the principal material used in most nests.
Macdonald took one nest at Pakokku in May.
The eggs are not distinguishable in any way from those of the Indian bird. Twenty-four eggs average 28.1 x 21.4 mm. : maxima 30.3 x 21.9 and 29.3 x 22.4 mm. ; minima 26.1 x 21.8 and 28.1 x 20.1 mm.
As with so many species which divide in their extremes into easily separated geographical races, there is a considerable area of intermediate country in which the birds also are more or less intermediate. The eggs of all such are left out of consideration in this volume, though some were admitted by me in 1922.
