THE SIND BROWN HILL-WARBLER.
Suya Criniger striatula, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. ii, p. 520.
The Sind race of Hill-Warbler extends along the North-West Frontier, though exactly how far has not yet been ascertained. It has also been obtained on the Salt Range in the Punjab. The only note on its breeding is that of H. W. Waite (Journ. Bomb. Nat. Hist. Soc. vol. xxxii, p. 797, 1928)
“During the last week of July this year (1927) I found this bird common on the hill of Sarkesar, some 30 miles East of the Indus and at the extreme West of the Punjab Salt Range, of which it forms the highest point (4,992 ft.).
“Its favourite haunts appeared to be steep slopes covered with long grass and well supplied with bushes of various kinds. Nesting operations were in progress and several nests were found, mostly in course of construction.
“In one nest a bird was sitting on two eggs on July 24th and again on the 28th, when the eggs were taken and the male parent secured. The eggs, which were slightly incubated, have a ground¬colour of very pale pink and are marked with pale reddish blotches scattered over the whole surface and most numerous at the broader end, where they form an ill-defined ring. The nest was situated, barely 12" from the ground, in a ‘Sanatha’ bush (Didmoea vicosa), through which some tufts of grass were growing. It was an oval domed structure, made of strips of grass, and the lower portion was matted with seed-down. The inner lining was of fine grass, and the entrance faced North.
“Another nest, similarly built and situated, contained three half¬fledged young on July 28th.”
