Little is known about the feeding habits of the Correndera pipit, but like all South American pipits, it forages mainly on the ground, walking and running around in a distinctive fashion (2) (3). Insects and other invertebrates comprise the main part of its diet, but it probably also takes seeds (2). Breeding occurs from June to December, with males performing a display flight that involves repeatedly rising 20 to 40 metres into the air, where it hovers and sings, before gliding back down to earth (2) (3). The shallow nest is made from grass and finer material such as hair, and concealed in a depression in the ground. The average clutch size comprises two to four eggs. In parts of its range, the Correndera pipit is resident year round, but in the central and southern areas, many migrate north after breeding, whilst those in the extreme south routinely migrate north in April and return south in September (2).
