THE WHITE THROATED FANTAIL.

Length, 7.5; expanse, 9.25 ; wing, 3.13 ; tail, 4.5; tarsus, 0.75 ; bill at front, 0.3.

Bill black; irides dark-brown ; legs black.

Sooty brown-black throughout, tinged with ashy in the abdomen and back, and dusky-brownish on the wings and outer tail-feathers, the three outermost of which are tipped with dirty-white ; a very short supercilium ; chin and throat white.

The occurrence of the White-throated Fantail within our limits is doubtful.

Franklin is said to have procured it in Central India. Adams, who evidently mistook it for L. aureola, says it is common at Poona. Colonel Sykes includes it in the Birds of the Deccan.
