Very little information for Sinaloa Martin.  It is present on the breeding grounds in western Mexico from March to August (Howell and Webb 1995).  Breeds in small colonies, and is often seen around tall dead snags (Howell and Webb 1995). Also nests in small colonies in cliff faces (3 pairs at one site, mid-April, Sinaloa, Mexico; M. Retter, pers. comm.). The nest and egss apparently are undescribed, and there is no information on clutch size, incubation, or fledging periods.
