(1691) Glaucidium ouculoides brugeli Parrot.
THE SIAM BARBED OWLET.
Glaucidium cuculoides brugeli, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. iv, p. 140.
This is the Siamese form of Barred Owlet, which may extend into Eastern Burma more widely than is known. A specimen in the British. Museum from Karenni seems to be certainly of this race.
Herbert found this Barred Owlet breeding freely round Samkok, depositing its egga, three in number, in large natural hollows in big trees growing in the fruit-gardens and in other comparatively open places.
The breeding season is January and February, all Herbert’s eggs being taken between the 17th January and the 7th February.
Seven eggs average 34.3 x 30.1 mm. ; maxima 36.2 x 30.3 and 36.1 x 31.0 mm. ; minima 33.9 x 29.0 mm.
