THE KARENNI GOLDEN-THROATED BARBET.
Cyanops franklinii ramsayi, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. iv, p. 125.
Ramsay’s Barbet, as this bird has hitherto been called, ranges from the Shan States to about the latitude of Muleyit in Tenasserim and, perhaps, some distance further South.
It inhabits the same kind of country as the preceding bird and is found from about 2,000 feet to the highest peaks.
Very little is known about its nidification. Hopwood obtained three eggs from a hole at the top of a rotten stump, about 20 feet from the ground, on the 27th April, and on the same date five years previously Cook took four eggs, near Kellow, from a hole in a dead stump about 6 feet from the ground. I have also three eggs in my collection (a pair and a single egg) taken by Bingham on Mt, Muleyit on the 10th and 7th May respectively.
From the above we may take the breeding season as being April and May, while the full clutch of eggs is probably three or four.
Ton eggs average 28.6 x 20.7 mm. : maxima 31.7 x 20.7 and 27.3 x 21.5 mm. ; minima 26.5 x 20.8 and 27.0 x 20.0 mm.
