428. Pycnonotus finlaysoni davisoni

(428) Pycnonotus finlaysoni davisoni,

DAVISON'S STRIPE-THROATED BULBUL.

Ixus davisoni Hume, S. F., iii, p. 301 (1875) (Arrakan).

Vernacular names. None recorded.

Description. Differs from the preceding bird in having the forehead and crown concolorous except for a narrow yellow line just above the lores; the yellow on the throat and chin is much less in extent; the whole head and nape is dull olive with faint golden centres to the feathers.

Colours of soft parts as in P. fi. finlaysoni*

Measurements. A slightly bigger bird than Finlayson's Bulbul, the wing running from 76 mm. to 90 mm.

Distribution. Arrakan, Chin Hills to Tenasserim West of Sittaung River.

Nidification. Oates obtained two nests in Pegu—cups made of stems of weeds, lined with grass and placed low down, one in a bush, the other in a creeper about 4 feet from the ground. In both cases there were two eggs, typical Bulbul's eggs, in every way, and measuring between 23.3 x 16.5 mm. and 20.8 x 15.5 mm. They breed in June.

Habits. These do not differ in any way from those of the last bird.
