CHAVEZ-LEON, Gilberto. A new record of eggs and a domed nest of the Long-tailed Wood-Partridge (Dendrortyx macroura). Huitzil [online]. 2010, vol.11, n.2, pp.66-68. ISSN 1870-7459.
A domed nest with four eggs of the Long-tailed Wood-Partridge (Dendrortyx macroura) was found on 29 April 1998 at 1900 m in Barranca del Cupatitzio National Park, Michoacán, Mexico. I describe the vegetation at the site and the structure of the nest and a clutch of four eggs found on 11 June 1998 in the nearby communal forest of Nuevo San Juan Parangaricutiro.
