Abstract: We describe the nests and eggs of Hylophylax naevia and Cyanocorax cyanomelas from Brazil. The nest of H. naevia is a deep cup, suspended by its rim from a forked branch and constructed with vegetal fibers braided with thin stems. The nest contained two pinkish-cream colored eggs, with several large, elongate dark purple blotches. The nest of C. cyanomelas is cup shaped, composed by many dry twigs and lined with thin vegetable fibbers and roots. Their eggs are light blue, with reddish brown blotches. © 2005 Instituto de Ciências Biológicas - UFMG.
