(1737) Neohierax insignis insignis Walden.
Feilden’s, or the Burmese, Grey Falconet.
Neohierax insignis insignis, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. v, p. 56.
This Hawk or Falconet is found over the whole of Burma from the Chin and Kachin Hills and the Shan States to, hut not including, Tenasserim.
Practically nothing is known of the breeding of this bird. Bingham says that it makes a nest of sticks and twigs, while Coltart had a clutch of eggs sent to him by a friend in Burma, also said to have been taken from a stick-nest in a low tree. The eggs, unfor¬tunately, arrived smashed to pieces and could not even be measured. They appeared as if they had been very much like small eggs of Astur badius, being a grey-white in colour, quite without any marking.
