1340. Picus vittatus dehras

(1340) Picus vittatus dehrae Stuart Baker.
THE HIMALAYAN SCALY-BELLIED WOODPECKER.
Picks vittatus dehroe, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed, vol. iv, p. II.
This race of vittatus inhabits the Western Himalayas from Kuman to Garhwal and Western Nepal.
The only note on the breeding of this bird in Hume’s 'Nests and Eggs' is to the effect that in “the Doon and Kumaon Bhabur” the birds lay from March to May, In Kashmir it breeds in May and June and in Garhwal during the same months. It seems to breed in any kind of tree and at any height from the ground between 6 and 40 feet while, more often than not, the tree selected seems to bo one in the open or in an orchard. Ward has taken its eggs from trees at about 7,000 feet elevation, and it also breeds as low down as 2,500 feet.
The few eggs I have measure about 27.4 x 20.8 mm.
