(45) Garrulus bispecularis haringtoni.
RIPPON'S JAY.
Garrulus haringtoni Rippon, Ball. B. O. C, xv, p. 97 (1905) (Mt. Victoria, S. Chin Hills).

Vernacular names. None recorded.

Description. Similar to the Sikkim Jay, but throat whitish and sides of head and ear-coverts much paler. The crown is also distinctly, sometimes strongly, streaked with blackish.

Measurements. This is a large bird, the wing-measurements being 170 to 178 mm., so that in size as well as in colour it approaches the Burmese Jay.

Distribution. South Chin Hills and South Kachin Hills, where they seem to overlap with the Burmese Jay. A Jay which is found in the N. Shan States may be this or leucotis.

Nidification. The nest and eggs of this Jay were taken on Mt. Victoria but no details recorded.

Habits. Similar to those of the other Jays. It is said to keep much to pine-forests and to grass-covered hills with scattered oaks *
