Abstract
I describe the nest, egg, and nesting behavior of the Snowy Cotinga (Carpodectes nitidus) in La Selva Biological Station, Costa Rica. The nest was placed 7.5 m high on a fork formed by four branches of a leafless tree. The nest was a simple platform made of dry tendrils and lichens. It contained a single large egg, which took at least 27 days to hatch. The nest and chick were predated the day after hatching. Both nest and egg characteristics resemble those of other cotinga species.
