Multiple broods from a hole in the wall: breeding Red-and-yellow Barbets Trachyphonus erythrocephalus in southeast Sudan

M de Bont

Abstract


Nesting and breeding behaviour of Red-and-yellow Barbets Trachyphonus erythrocephalus was recorded from a nest in the brick stone-wall of a house in Nanyangacor, south-eastern Sudan in 2005. There were at least five breeding attempts throughout the year, with at least four broods from this single nesting hole. The mean number of days in between broods was 27, and breeding did not appear to be directly related to rainfall.
