Its flight is rapid; and, if surprised, it elevates its ear tufts, and spreads its tail, which gives it a singular appearance. Its food consists of berries and the larvæ of insects.   P. cincta (Dubus) Bull. Acad. Sc. Brux. 1839, p. 295. t.  —  Ptilotis auritus Lafr. Mag. de Zool. 1840. Ois. t. 11." (G. Gray 1846).
