(859) Phylloscopus fuliginiventer (Hodgs.).
THE SMOKY WILLOW-WARBLER.
Phylloscopus fuliginiventer, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. ii, p. 460.
The Smoky Willow-Warbler probably breeds from Nepal and Tibet to the hills North of Assam.
All that is recorded about this bird’s breeding is the fact that three eggs were sent me with a skin said to have been taken from a nest found near the Hramtso Lake in Tibet on the 4th August.
The eggs are like heavily marked eggs of Phylloscopus affinis but without any gloss and all four marked alike—white eggs freely marked with small reddish spots. They measure 15.0 x 12.0, 14.6 x 12.2 and 15.0 x 12.1 mm.
They are not the eggs of P. affinis, but I do not think they can be taken as identified without doubt as those of fuliginiventer.
They were taken at an elevation approximately of 14,000 feet.
