(1501) Psittacula krameri borealis Neumann.
THE EASTERN ROSE-RINGED PAROQUET.
Psittacula krameri borealis, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. iv, p. 204.
The Eastern form of this Paroquet is found from Sikkim along the Eastern Himalayas to Eastern Assam, Eastern Bengal and the whole of Burma as far South as Pegu.
There is nothing one can add abont the breeding of this subĀ¬species which is different to that of the preceding. Cripps says that he found it breeding in Dibrugarh in June, but Coltart and I both obtained nests with young in February, January to March being almost certainly the normal breeding season.
Twenty eggs average 29.3 x 24.0 mm. ; maxima 30.1 x 24.4 and 29.0 x 25.2 mm. ; minima 28.0 x 22.3 mm.
