Breeding

Introduction

Very little information. Hartert and Hartert (1894) reported a nest, with two eggs, in October. Otherwise specimens in breeding condition have been collected in February and April, and "young" specimens were collected in June and October, perhaps suggesting peaks of breeding from February-May and again in September-October (Collar et al. 1992).
