(1387) Miglyptes jugularis Blyth.
THE BLACK-AND-Buff WOODPECKER.
Miglyptes jugularis, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. iv, p. 60.
The Black-and-Buff Woodpecker occurs over the whole of Central and South Burma from Arakan and Karenni in the North to Tenas¬serim about as far South as Amherst. East it extends into Siam, Annam, and Cochin China.
Both Mackenzie and Hopwood found this quite a common bird in the heavily-forested areas in Tenasserim, but the former never came across a nest while the latter found one only. This was a small hole cut in a dead tree in thick jungle, containing one hard-set egg which measured 22.0 x 37.2 mm., and was taken on the 2nd March.
