(45) Garrulus bispecularis haringtoni Rippon.
RIPPON’S CHIN HILLS RED-CROWNED JAY.
Garrulus bispecularis haringtoni, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. ii, p. 65.
This Jay is confined to the South of the Chin Hills and also enters the South-West of the Kachin Hills.
The only note on its nidification is that of K. C. Macdonald (Journ. Bomb. Nat. Hist. Soc. vol. xvii, p. 184, 1906) :—
“I found a nest belonging to a pair of these birds on Popa on the 5th of April. It was in a sapling about 20 feet from the ground and contained three young ones and one hard set egg. The parents were very noisy when I approached the nest and gave away its existence. There are a few pairs of birds on Popa, but I think nowhere else in the district.”
The nest and eggs were also said to have been taken on Mt. Victoria but I have never been able to obtain any details of this occurrence.
