This bird was somewhat larger than the former; the colours and marks were the same, but much darker, and the spots on the breast larger and more numerous; the ears were not discernible. Being a dead bird, and having not seen any other at the time, the editor supposed it to be a distinct kind; but having since seen several, both males and females, is convinced of the mistake.
