THE BURMESE GOLDEN-HEADED BABBLES.
Stachyris chrysaea assimilis, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. i, p. 267.
The Burmese Golden-headed Babbler is found, and is resident, in the hills of Eastern Burma from the Southern Shan States to Karenni and probably all the Central hill-ranges of Burma.
I have only one note about its nidification, sent me with a clutch of three eggs from the Southern Shan States :—
“The nest was just a handful of bamboo leaves curved round in the shape of a nest and lined with a few roots and fine fibres. Although, in situ, the nest presented the appearance of a small domed structure, just the act of looking in to see if there were eggs knocked all the dome off and spoilt the nest. It was placed on the ground where it was steeply sloping in mixed bamboo and bush jungle at about 4,000 feet elevation, and was taken on the 2nd of April.”
The three pure white eggs measure 16.1 x 11.4 ; 16.4 x 12.1 and 16.3 x 12.3 mm.
