(1999) Turnix suscitator Makistoni (Swinhoe).
THE CHINESE BUSTARD-QUAIL.
Turnix suscitator blakistoni, Fauna B. I., Birds, 2nd ed. vol. v, p. 448.
The Chinese bird is found over the greater part of South and Western China and, within our limits, is common in the Shan States to Karen-ni.
Harington and Cook took a great number of nests of this Bustard Quail which came into my possession after their deaths, but I have no notes to show that the nidification differs in any way from that of the other Bustard-Quails. The eggs have been taken from the 24th February to the 21st July.
Later Livesey obtained nests in April and May in the Southern Shan States and says that the nidification is just like that of the Indian bird.
Thirty-two eggs average 24.1 x 20.4 mm. : maxima 27.2 x 21.1 mm. ; minima 22.1 x 19.0 and 24.0 x 18.3 mm.
