Key MethodA nest of the Bicolored Antvireo (Dysithamnus occidentalis) was videotaped during daylight hours from shortly before laying the first egg until hatching of the nestlings. Clutch size was two. The period from laying of the last egg to its hatch was 19 days. Both sexes participated in incubation. The male performed the majority of incubation duties. Both sexes were seen to maintain the nest during incubation by arranging and adding additional material, and by removing ectoparasites. Adults were…

NESTING BIOLOGY OF THE LONG-WATTLED UMBRELLABIRD (CEPHALOPTERUS PENDULIGER). PART I: INCUBATION
TLDR
A nest of Long-wattled Umbrellabird (Cephalopterus penduliger) was videotaped in southwestern Ecuador from 3–4 days after laying the single egg, until hatching of the nestling.
The breeding biology of Grallaria and Grallaricula antpittas
TLDR
Overall, the knowledge of the breeding biology of antpittas has improved significantly in recent years, however, much remains to be learned for most species.
The nest, eggs and incubation behaviour of Sickle-winged Guan Chamaepetes goudotii fagani in western Ecuador
TLDR
It is suggested that the species be reverted to its prior conservation status of Data Deficient (Stattersfield et al. 1998), despite ongoing deforestation in the southern part of the range.

BREEDING BEHAVIOR OF THE LAUGHING FALCON (HERPETOTHERES CACHINNANS) IN SOUTHWESTERN ECUADOR AND NORTHWESTERN PERU Comportamiento de anidación del Halcón Reidor (Herpetotheres cachinnans) en el suroccidente de Ecuador y el noroccidente de Perú
TLDR
Site fidelity and nesting season appeared consistent among years in each nest, but differed between the two nests, and the female spent 4.5% of her time while on the nest engaged in behaviors other than incubation, particularly nest maintenance.

TLDR
The results of over 110 h of observation during incubation at a nest of the Peruvian Antpitta are presented, from the day after laying the single egg to the day before it hatched.

TLDR
It is suggested that occidentalis be reinstated in the genus Dysithamnus, based upon observations of its behavior and vocalizations, which allows a reassessment of the generic alignment of this elusive antbird of the subtropical forests of the northern Andes.
