The Birds of Africa, Comprising All the Species Which Occur in the Ethiopian Region, Vol. 4 free pdf Excerpt from The Birds of Africa, Comprising All the Species Which Occur in the Ethiopian Region, Vol. 4 Amblyospiza concolor, Bocage, Jorn. Lisb. 1888, pp. 229, 232 St. Thomas Isl.- Sharpe, Cat. B. M. xiii. p. 670 (1890)- Shelley, B. Afr. I. No. 458 (1896). Neospiza concolor, Salvad. Acc. R. Sc. Torino, 1903, p. 26- Bocage, Jorn. Lisb. 1904, p. 80 St. Thomas Isl.- Reichen. Vog. Afr. iii. p. 278 (1904). Adult. Very similar in colouring to L. rufibrunneus, but a much larger bird. Entire plumage rufous brown, with ill-defined blackish centres to the feathers of the forehead, crown, hind neck and mantle- wings and tail, with the exception of the edges of the feathers, darker brown- under surface of the quills silvery brown, slightly paler on the inner margins- under wing-coverts rufous brown like the entire under parts. "Iris pale brown- bill dusky brown, with the under mandible whitish- feet brown." Total length 8 inches, culmen 0.90, wing 4.2, tail 1.9, tarsus 1.0., 9.90. Rio Quija (F. Newton). The Great Brown Short-tailed Finch is confined to the Island of St. Thomas. The species was discovered by Mr. F. Newton, who informs us that it is known to the natives of the island as the "Enjolo." On the east coast he procured two specimens at the Rio Quija, which runs through the large forest at Angolares, and he observed it on the west coast at St. Miguel. I overlooked the affinities of this bird when I published my third volume of the "Birds of Africa," presuming that it had been rightly assigned to the genus Amblyospiza, where it remained until Count Salvadori pointed out that it is a true Finch, and proposed to make it the type of a new genus Neospiza (Acc. R. Sc. Torino, 1903, p. 26). This species appears to me not to be generically distinct from Linurgus rufibrunneus, Gray, and Phaeospiza thomensis, Bocage, both of which I have referred to the genus Linurgus, Reichenbach. It comes into my key (B. Afr. III., p. 172): "a. Plumage nearly uniform tawny brown, darker above than below." Add. a. Larger, wing over 4 inches, concolor. b. Wing under 3.5 inches, rufibrunneus and thomensis. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
