Brief SummaryRead full entry
BiologyBlyth's tragopan breeds from March or early April through to May, nesting either on the ground or in trees, usually in an abandoned nest of another species. Clutch size is between two and six eggs, which are thought to be incubated for approximately 28 to 30 days. Males have been observed bringing food to the incubating female in the nest, and during the few occasions in captivity when females have vacated the nest to feed, males have generally been noted to take over incubation (7). Diet is believed to consist of a variety of leaves, seeds, berries, fruits, buds and invertebrates, and even frogs have apparently featured in the diet in captivity (2).
