The southern red bishop is a type of bird that practices polygamy, with the male having multiple female partners either at the same time or one after the other. However, it is worth noting that the male does not contribute to incubating or raising the chicks. Instead, he focuses on protecting his territory from other males. To attract females during breeding season, the male constructs a number of nests within his domain and showcases his work by engaging in a fierce fight called the bumblebee fight, where he puffs up his feathers. The nest itself takes an oval shape and is made out of grass, typically built above water. Once inside, the female will lay between two to four eggs.
