(212) Pomatorhinus ferruginosus albogularis Blyth.
THE TENASSERIM CORAL-BILLED SCIMITAR-BABBLER.
Pomatorhinus ferruginosus albigularis, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. i, p. 215.
This Babbler is resident, and breeds, in the mountains and hills of Burma from Tavoy, in Tenasserim, Northwards as far as the Karen Hills, where it meets P. f. marioe.
I can find nothing on record about the breeding of this bird and the only collector to take its eggs and nest appears to be Mr. K. C. Macdonald, who took two nests on the Taok Plateau, 3,500 feet, about 30 miles East of Amherst. In both cases the parents of the nest were identified satisfactorily, but in a third nest, with three eggs, the parent bird was not obtained. The first two nests contained two and three eggs respectively, which average in size 24.4 x 18.6 mm. They were taken on the 4th and 20th April.
