THE SHAN STATES SMALL WREN-BABBLER.

Napothera epilepidota bakeri, ibid. vol. viii, p. 603.
This Babbler is found only in the Shan States and Karenni. There is no record of the breeding of the Tenasserim race of Wren- Babbler, but three eggs were sent me with a skin of this species to identify. They were said to have been taken on the 15th of February. These eggs are longer than most Napothera eggs and measure 19.6 x 16.3, 20.3 x 17.0 and 21.6 x 16.8 mm.
I do not feel satisfied that the nest and eggs were correctly identified as those of the bird shot, and in dense jungles it is. so easy to make a mistake if a bird is not trapped on the nest or shot leaving it that I would not accept these as without doubt.
