Abstract:At present, the reproductive population of Gorsachius magnificus has been recorded only in Guangdong Province, Zhejiang Province, Hubei Province, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region of China and northern Vietnam. In July and Angust of 2019, 3 nests of G. magnificus, containing at least 7 young birds, were found in the Leigongshan National Nature Reserve, Guizhou Province. The nests were simple and similar to a disk in shape. The common characteristics of the 3 nest sites were as follows:water wetlands with sparse human population and dense habitat vegetation surrounded by mountain forests; and tall nest trees with many branches grow on steep slopes. This study provides basic information for species conservation and reproduction of G. magnificus.
