Male ad. (Lenkoran). Differs from D. luscinia in having a longer wing and tail, in having the lores and a stripe over the eye dull white ; the rump, upper tail-coverts and tail are not so deep red in colour, and the first primary is about equal in length to the primary-coverts. Culmen 0.7, wing 3.3 tail 3.1, tarsus 1.1 inch, second primary equal to the fifth in length.
Hab. The Caucasus east to Persia and Turkestan. Two specimens have been obtained in Oudh, India, one in October and one in November.
In general habit it agrees closely with the Western Nightingale but its song is inferior. Its nest and eggs also closely resemble those of D. luscinia.
SYLVIA, Scop, 1769.
