During the breeding season, White-throated Manakin (Corapipo gutturalis) gather around a log, where the males bob and pose as he tries to impress a would-be mate. After a successful display, they build a cup-shaped nest from moss and plant fiber placed about 8 meters above ground level in the fork of a tree. It is bound to twigs with cobwebs into which a clutch of up to 2 eggs is laid.
