HUME'S TREE WARBLER.
Length, 4 to 4.2; expanse, 6.25 to 6.4 ; tail, 1.4 to 1.6 ; wing, 2 to 2.15; tarsus, 0.68 to 0.71 ; bill at front, 0.27 to 0.3.
Bill black, in some paler or greenish-horny at base beneath ; irides brown ; legs and feet black.
Lores brownish-white ; a comparatively pure and very narrow white streak runs from the nostrils over the lores and eyes, but not beyond; the whole upper surface is dull earthy-brown, with in some a faintly olivaceous-rufescent tinge on the back, most conspicuous on the rump; the quills and tail are a moderately dark hair-brown, narrowly margined on the outer webs with pale olivaceous-brown, much the same color as the upper parts; the secondaries are very narrowly margined at the tips with albescent; the whole lower surface is albescent, tinged with very pale fulvous-fawn, or earthy-brown, more strongly so in some specimens than in others; the sides and flanks more strongly so in all; in some specimens the sides and flanks are pale earthy-brown; the wing-lining and axillaries are white, with at times the faintest possible fulvous or brownish tinge.
Mr. Hume, the discoverer of this species, says: " This tiny Leaf Hunter, the smallest of the whole group, is not uncommon along the banks of the Indus and throughout Upper Sind, wherever thick clumps of babool are met with."
