THE CHESTNUT-BREASTED MALKOHA.
Rhamphococeyx erythrognathus, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed, vol. iv, p. 181.
This fine Malkoha has been found as far North as Yea in Tenas¬serim, from which place it extends South through the Malay States and peninsular Siam to Sumatra.
This bird is resident wherever found, and wilt therefore eventually be obtained breeding in Tenasserim. At present the only eggs known are three clutches, each of two, taken by Kellow near Sim¬pang and Taiping in evergreen forest on the 9th February and the 16th and 24th of March. Kellow merely notes with regard to these eggs “Nests very ragged structures or platforms of twigs lined with loaves and such shallow affairs that it would seem that the eggs must be blown out with a wind. They were built in tall bushes in evergreen forest,”
The six eggs average 34.9 x 26.4 mm. and vary very little in size.
