Breeding

Peak breeding season occurs during the months of March and April, with males with enlarged testes and females with brood patches observed during this time (Stiles 1998). On 30 March 1992 an individual, presumably a female, was observed repeatedly carrying moss, fibers, and leaf petioles to a mass of bromeliads in the fork of a tree trunk 8 m high (Stiles 1998). This presumed nest site was at the edge of a tree fall gap, with a male singing from the adjacent treetop. A juvenile was observed in June (Hilty 2011).
