THE SOUTHERN YELLOW TIT.
Length, 6 ; expanse, 10 ; wing, 3 ; tail, 2.5 ; tarsus, 0.7; bill at front, 0.35.
Bill black ; irides light-brown; legs plumbeous.
Very similar to the last, but conspicuously larger; has the back less tinged with yellow, being dull green with a slaty tinge; the yellow portion of the plumage not so intense in hue, and the yellow sincipital streak short, and not continued forward over the eye.
This Tit is a permanent resident on the Sahyadri Range, and in the well wooded tracts adjoining; it also occurs on Mount Aboo ; it is unknown in Sind.
Jerdon states that he found it common on the Vindhian Range, near Mhow, but a bird that I procured from thence proved to belong to the preceding species.
