Brood parasite upon other birds. Female lays eggs in the nests of barbets, woodpeckers or some flycatchers.
The young have a hooked beak, with which they usually use upon hatching to crack the other eggs in their nest, or kill birds already-hatched in their nest. Hatching honeyguides may also simply throw their nestmates out of the nest.
