Article summary

The nesting in Belgium of the Nutcracker has been confirmed since 1975. Yet, notes on the breeding behaviour of Belgian birds have not been published. Since 1983, some nests were discovered and followed during the breeding season. In 1989, a nest was watched on a weekly basis which has resulted in precise data on the behaviour of the species and the development of the young. These observations are described. Data gathered here are compared to previous data.
