In the Condor 83: 183 (1981) Williams described for the first time the nest and eggs of the Peruvian Thick-knee ( ).
Hughes, dated 25 September 1982, entitled Notes on the nesting of the Peruvian Thick-knee (Burhinus superciliaris) on the south coast of Peru.
superciliaris in Chile; had the existence of a viable breeding population at Mollendo been known, occurrence in Chile, 250 km away, would surely not have been questioned, as there are no apparent intervening physical or ecological barriers in Moquegua or Tacna. The most up-to-date general overview can now be found in Hume & Kirwan (2019). superciliaris populations, Camacho (2012) gave the overall breeding season as four months, but knowledge of the ‘very extended breeding season’ documented by RAH stretches this to twice as long. Finally, Hume & Kirwan (2019) still report that the breeding biology of Burhinus superciliaris remains little known. Since so little is known of the nidification of this species, the following observations from the Mollendo district, department of Arequipa, southwest Peru, may be of interest.
