A nest at Cocha Cashu, Madre de Dios, Peru was "a perfect round cup", constructed of branches, lianas, and leaves, and placed 1.6 m above the ground (del Hoyo and Motis 2004). The clutch is 2-3 eggs. In northern Peru, nests and fledglings are reported from November-February (Begazo and Bodmer 1998).
