Grallaria and Grallaricula antpittas are poorly known ground antbirds (Formicariidae), which reach their center of diversity in the tropical Andes region. Here we review published literature on the reproductive ecology of these two genera, summarizing and synthesizing the information. Nests have been described for 13 of the 31 species of Grallaria and four of the eight species of Grallaricula. For both genera, nests are open cups placed either against a strong support (e.g., tree trunks…

First Nest Description of the Yellow breasted Antpitta Grallaria Flavotincta in North west Ecuador
Grallaria antpittas are poorly known members of the Grallariidae, distributed throughout the Andes and comprise 31 species. Despite many recent contributions to our understanding of their breeding
First description of the nest, eggs and nestlings of Scallop-breasted Antpitta Grallaricula loricata
TLDR
The reproductive biology of Scallop-breasted Antpitta remains completely unknown and the first descriptions of the nest, eggs and nestlings are provided, based on two active nests and five inactive nests found in Venezuela’s Sierra de Aroa National Park.
First Description of the Nest of Jocotoco Antpitta (Grallaria ridgelyi)
TLDR
The Jocotoco Antpitta (Grallaria ridgelyi) is an endangered and poorly studied inhabitant of montane bamboo thickets of extreme southeastern Ecuador, and a nest of this species is described for the first time.
Nesting Biology of the Sooty Antibird (Hafferia fortis) In Southeastern Peru
TLDR
Nesting characteristics observed in H. fortis are similar to other Hafferia species, although there is little information about incubation and brooding behavior for the longipes clade, and in general for the Thamnophilidae.
Description of the nest and parental care of the Chestnut-naped Antpitta ( Grallaria nuchalis ) from southern Ecuador
The Chestnut-naped Antpitta (Grallaria nuchalis; Fig. 1) is among the largest of the groundantbirds (Grallariidae sensu Remsen et al. 2008). Locally fairly common, it is frequently associated with
First description of the nest of White-browed Antpitta Hylopezus ochroleucus
TLDR
A nest and nestlings found at the Parque Natural Municipal do Distrito de Brejinho, Araripe, Ceara, Brazil are described and their findings compared to related species and other members of the family Grallariidae are compared.
Geographical variation in slate-crowned antpitta Grallaricula nana, with two new subspecies, from Colombia and Venezuela
Slatecrowned Antpitta Grallaricula nana is a small member of the Grallariidae found in the northern Andes. The song of most populations has been soundrecorded (Appendix 1) and some ecological data
First Description of Nests and Eggs of Chestnut-headed Crake (Anurolimnas castaneiceps) from Ecuador
TLDR
The nest and eggs of the Chestnut-headed Crake are described based on observations of two nests found in the border of the Lliquino River, Pastaza Province, Ecuador suggesting a close relationship between Anurolimnas and Aramides.
Breeding Biology, Behavior, and Ecology of Setophaga cerulea in the Cumberland Mountains, Tennessee
TLDR
Basic breeding biology and behavior and incidental observations of scientific interest from three years of research on Cerulean Warblers in the Cumberland Mountains of eastern Tennessee are described and added to the understanding of Cerulea biology, ecology, and life history.
Interspecific Competition in Grallaria Antpittas: Observations at a Feeder
TLDR
It is shown that in avian systems in which playback experiments fail to detect competition, competition may still be prevalent, in this case manifesting in a nonvocal, physically aggressive interaction between the Jocotoco Antpitta and a close relative, the Chestnut-napedAntpitta.

PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF THE NEST ARCHITECTURE OF NEOTROPICAL OVENBIRDS (FURNARIIDAE)
TLDR
This first cladistic analysis of the furnariids demonstrates the general utility of nest characters in reconstruction of avian rela- tionships, and it provides a test of monophyly for several furnariid taxa.

We studied several aspects of the nesting of the Moustached Antpitta (Grallaria alleni), an endangered species in Colombia due to the destruction of Andean forests. The nest is cup-shaped, similar in

ARE MICROHABITAT PREFERENCES OF COEXISTING SPECIES UNDER SELECTION AND ADAPTIVE
TLDR
Examination of microhabitat preferences and adaptiveness of preferences for seven bird species coexisting in high elevation snowmelt drainages indicated that preferences had positive directional selection coefficients, and selection coefficients suggested that selection might be acting to favor preferences.
