     It nests among overhanging roots along creeks and ravines or in holes in the banks.  One nest was found by Tindall in a wagon bridge near Independence.  Five to seven eggs are laid  in early May and more than one brood is raised.  One nest was found on August 15, 1901, containing three fresh eggs (Tindall).
