Social life






Egg Laying occurs mainly from March to May. In the nuptial parade, the male vibrates his wings, raises his tail, displays his face mask, and raises his plume. Laying takes place on the ground and consists of 6 to 9 eggs, which are incubated for 25 to 26 days by the female alone. The young are nestlings, that is, they leave the nest early, in this case immediately after hatching; they then begin to feed themselves, but follow their mother until they are independent. They reach sexual maturity after the first year of age
