Screaming Piha Lipaugus vociferans

  • Order: Passeriformes
  • Family: Cotingidae
  • Monotypic
  • Authors: Ian Suzuki, Natsumi Fearnside, Wendy Tori, and Jose I. Pareja


Very little is known about the reproductive behavior of the Screaming Piha. The few reported nests (Érard 1982, Oniki and Willis 1982, Sick 1993) are relatively small, for the size of the bird, and are untidy collections of thin twigs, tendrils, or vine, 7-8 m above the ground.

The clutch apparently is a single egg; the egg is cream, with irregular brown and brown gray markings (Érard 1982).
