Culmen 0.37, wing 2.05, tail 1.65, tarsus 0.75 inch ; 1st primary long, 0.65 shorter than the 2nd, which is intermediate between the 8th and 9th. The female is a trifle smaller than the male.
Hab. Transcaspia and Turkestan during the summer, winter┬Čing in Southern Persia, Baluchistan, Sind, and the Punjab and Doab as far as Agra.
In its general habits it is very shy and cautious, frequenting close foliaged trees, and is therefore difficult to obtain. It breeds in Transcaspia and Turkestan but its nest and eggs are as yet unknown. In Sind a form differing only in being somewhat larger in size (Ph. sindianus Brooks, Str. Feath, viii p. 476) is said to be resident.
