THE BENGAL SIRKEER.

Length, 17 ; wing, 6 ; tail, 9.5.

Above, pale satin-brown; beneath ashy-brown on the foreneck and breast, tinged with ferruginous, and passing gradually into the ferruginous of the belly, flanks and tibial plumes ; this hue is darker here than in the last, and browner about the vent and under tail-coverts; feathers of the head and neck also black shafted.

The Bengal Sirkeer is not uncommon in Northern Guzerat and Sind ; its habits much resemble those of the last.
