Very little is known about the reproductive biology of Tawny-collared Nightjar. The breeding season is April to August (Cleere 1998). The nest site is not described, but presumably eggs are laid directly on the ground, with no nest, as is typical of nightjars. The clutch is two; eggs are whitish, marked with browns and grays (Howell and Webb 1995).
