THE CRESTED WOOD-PARTRIDGE.
Rollulus roulroul, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. v, p. 368.
The Crested Wood-Partridge occurs in Tenasserim, South-West peninsular Siam, the Malay States, Sumatra and Borneo. Its status in Java is doubtful.
Very little is recorded about this bird, which frequents deep forest. Its nest has never been found, hut a captive bird in Inglis’s aviaries
in Bihar laid four eggs, the last on 25th April, of which he kindly gave me one. It is pure white, of close, fine texture and a fairly glossy surface, while in shape it is pyriform-oval, add measures 30.0 x 28.0 mm.
