Prinia adamsi

Prinia adamsi, Jerdon.

533. :- Jerdon's Birds of India, Vol. II, p. 170 ; Butler, Deccan ; Stray Feathers, Vol. IX, p. 406.

THE WHITE-BELLIED WREN WARBLER.

Bill black ; legs yellow.

Above greenish, the tail tipped with white; cheeks, throat, and breast, whitish-yellow; belly and vent white, tinged with yellow; tail long, graduated; legs long.

The White-bellied Wren Warbler is not, I believe, a good species. Dr. Adams stated that he found it at Poona in the corn-fields. No one else seems ever to have met with it.
