The nest is a small cup of grass bound with spider's web placed on a horizontal branch 1-15 m high. Clutch size is between 2 and 4 and when seasons are favorable up to 4 clutches are raised. Eggs are incubated for 14-15 days by both parents. Young stay until the next clutch hatches and are then driven away. The nest is defended aggressively.
