63. Bulaca indranee

No. 63. Bulaca Indranee. SYKES.

THE BROWN WOOD OWL.

I have been able to discover no record of the nidification of this species, and though it is by no means uncommon in Southern India, I possess no specimens. At present, as I shall more fully explain when dealing with B. Newarensis, I very much doubt the specific distinctness of the two forms.

Of the geographical distribution of this present form, I can say nothing; according to Dr. Jerdon, Indranee occupies all Southern and Central India, Ceylon, Burmah and the Malayan Peninsular, while Newarensis, is confined to the Himalayahs, but I have seen a Burmese specimen wholly undistinguishable from a specimen which I myself shot at Simla, and which ought to be Newarensis.
