THE CEYLON SMALL YELLOW-NAPED WOODPECKER.
Fieus chlorolophus wellsi. Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. iv, p. 20.
Like the preceding race, this Woodpecker is a bird of forests or of neglected gardens with very thick cover, and is confined to Ceylon, and oven on this island almost entirely to the Southern half. The only person who has found its eggs is Phillips, who took “two eggs, quite fresh, from a hole cut out in a branch of a tree standing in a tea-garden quite close to the forest,” at an elevation of 3,000-feet. The eggs measure 27.0 x 18.0 and 26.2 x 17.3 mm.
In a letter to me Mr, Phillips remarks that the “bird is not rare but very little seen.”
