Biology

To date, few observations of the breeding behaviour of this species have been made (4). Nests are built on the ground amongst or under vegetation, but mostly on steep slopes or cliffs (2), and clutches usually consisting of two eggs appear to be laid around September and October (4). Adult plumage is not reached for at least three years, but sexual maturity and activity may not necessarily correlate (2). The diet consists primarily of invertebrates (80% of foraging time), but also of fruit, grass seeds, and scavenged birds and broken eggs (2).
