Abstract


Resumen ∙ Describimos algunos aspectos desconocidos sobre la biología reproductiva del Pinchaflor Satinado (Diglossa lafresnayii), en base a observaciones de un nido activo registrado en el sector de Cerro de Arcos, límite provincial de El Oro y Loja, Ecuador. El nido tenia forma de copa, con similares medidas al único nido previamente descrito de la especie. En su interior se encontró un polluelo completamente emplumado y un huevo no eclosionado, el cual se describe por primera vez. Además, se reportan datos de cuidado parental sobre la eliminación y consumo de sacos fecales provenientes de la nidada.

Abstract ∙ Additional notes on the breeding of Glossy Flowerpiercer (Diglossa lafresnayii) We describe some unknown aspects of the reproductive biology of the Glossy Flowerpiercer (Diglossa lafresnayii), based on observations of an active nest recorded in the Cerro de Arcos sector, the provincial boundary of El Oro and Loja, Ecuador. The nest was cup-shaped, with measures similar to the only nest previously described for the species. Inside, a fully feathered chick and an unhatched egg were found, which is described for the first time. In addition, parental care data are reported on elimination and consumption of fecal sacs from the brood.
