Scarlet-breasted Dacnis Dacnis berlepschi

Breeding

The southern Chocó has abundant year-round rainfall, but from August to November is especially wet, and the majority of breeding reports are during or shortly after this span, although there is conflicting information in the literature. In Ecuador, an adult was observed feeding young in December and an immature male was observed in October (Múnera 2014). An adult was observed offering food to young on 15 August in Esmeraldas, Ecuador (Solano-Ugalde et al. 2007). However, Hilty (2011) reports that family groups with juveniles and immature individuals are most regularly observed in the dry season (June to November).
