They prefer habitats that are in proximity to water, such as bogs or wet clearings. When it comes to reproduction, they typically lay a clutch of five eggs. These eggs are laid and incubated in a nest carefully constructed by the bird, taking advantage of the surrounding vegetation and suitable locations within their grassland habitat.
