A rocky area in Lamto, Ivory Coast, which is partly surrounded by plantations, was searched for nests of the White-necked Picathartes Picathartes gymnocephala. A total of 34 nests was found of which 10 were only remnants, 12 old and 12 rather new. One nest contained two chicks. It is suggested that ecotourism might be a suitable means to help to protect the species, but care has to be taken to avoid any further disturbance.
