(96) Suthora poliotis feae Salvadori.
THE KARENNI. or SALVADORI’S, ORANGE SUTHORA.
Suthora poliotis few, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. i, p. 111.
The breeding range of this Suthora is confined to an area extending from the Shan States and Kachin Hills to Karenni and Port Stedman.
The only nest and eggs ever taken were obtained by Col. H. H. Harington from Fort Stedman on the 1st June, 1905. The nest is described as exactly like that of S. p. poliotis and was “placed in a very thick bush standing in matted reeds and grasses overgrown with creepers and very hard to find.” The nest, which was sent to me with the eggs and parent birds, is a small cup made entirely of shreds of grass-blades well coated and plastered with cobwebs and lined with the finest grass-stems. It measured roughly 4 x 2 inches.
The two eggs are rather deeper blue in colour than those of the Assam Orange Suthora but similar in texture and shape. They measure 15.3 x 12.5 and 16.0 x 12.5 mm.
