211. SUBSP. ACCENTOR ERYTHROPYGIUS.
Accentor erythropygius (Swinhoe), P. Z. S., 1870, p. 124, pl. 9 ; Gould, B. of Asia, iv. pl. 43 ; David and Oust, Ois. Chine, p. 178 ; Sharpe, Cat. B. Br. Mus. vii. p. 663 ; Tacz. F. O. Sib. O. p. 221.
Ad. (E. Siberia). Differs from A. collaris in having the head and neck slightly darker, the flanks more rufous, and the rump and upper tail-coverts dull rusty instead of grey. Culmen 0.52, wing 4.25, tail 3.22, tarsus 0.95 inch.
Hab. The mountains of Eastern Siberia, and as far south as near Pekin ; also Japan.
In general habits it does not differ from Accentor collaris and also inhabits rocky mountainous localities at considerable elevations, retiring down into the valleys or passing further south in the late autumn. It breeds in the Chamardaban mountains in the southern Baikal district, and its nest and eggs doubtless resemble those of A. collaris, but so far as I know they have not yet been obtained.
