THE BURMESE GOLDEN-HEADED BABBLER.

Stachyris assimilis Walden, Blyth's B. of B., p. 116 (1895) (Karennee) ; Blanf. & Oates, i, p. 163.

Vernacular names. None recorded.

Description. Similar to the last bird but without any black eye-streak ; both upper and lower plumage rather duller, below more yellow, less orange.

Colours of soft parts. Iris deep red-brown or lake; bill lavender-grey, pinker at the base and on lower mandible; in some specimens dark horny-brown, probably in breeding season; legs yellowish brown to greenish brown. Wardlaw-Ramsay records one male as having black irides.

Measurements as in the others.

Distribution. S. Shan States and Karenni and probably all the hill-ranges of East Central Burma.

Nidification and Habits similar to those of the Assam bird. Three eggs sent me from the South Shan States measure about 15.3 x 12.0 ram.
