Abstract

Few nests and eggs for the genus Atlapetes (Emberizinae) have been described. I describe the first nest and egg for the Pale-naped Brush Finch (Atlapetes pallidinucha). The nest was a bulky open cup similar to those for other species in the genus Atlapetes, but differed from that of A. melanocephalus. The egg resembled those of A. albinucha, A. leucopis, and A. latinuchus demonstrating the variability among the genus. Nesting appears to be associated with the second peak of rains of the year.
