187. EASTERN GRASSHOPPER-WARBLER.
LOCUSTELLA STRAMINEA.
Locustella straminea, (Severtzoff), Turk. Jevot. p. 66 (1873) ; Dresser, ix. p. 95, pl. 652 ; Seebohm, Cat. 15. Br. Mus. v. p. 117 ; Oates, F Brit. Ind. Birds, i. p. 354 ; L. hendersoni, (Cass.) apud. Hume. Str. Feath. vi. p. 340 ; Dresser, ii. p. 614.
Male ad. (Ural). Differs from L. noevia in being smaller paler and more olivaceous in colour, the dark markings stronger defined, the under parts white, washed with buff on the breast and flanks ; bill horn-brown, yellowish at base ; legs dull yellowish flesh ; iris brown. Culmen 0.55, wing 2.15, tail 1.95, tarsus 0.82 inch ; first primary equal to the coverts, second intermediate between the 5th and 6th, third longest.
Hab. From the Ural range, through Turkestan to the Pamirs, breeding in the Ural, Transcaspia, and Turkestan, and wintering in the plains of India. In habits it does not differ from its western ally, and its nest and eggs, of which I do not find any description, doubtless resemble those of that species.
