Traditionally, there are five subspecies of bird Robin clown who occupy different mountainous areas along the central mountain ranges of New Guinea. However, several recent studies, explained that the nominate form in the Peninsula of West Papua Vogelkop genetically and morphologically distinct from the forms that were in the eastern part, which has been classified into one species widely distributed namely Black-capped Robin H. armiti. In this report we describe for the first time the two nests, one egg and one young bird Robin Clown endemic in Vogelkop and discuss breeding season. Structure and komposi nests and nesting sites have in common with the Black-capped Robin and Grey-headed Robin is endemic to Australia. The number of eggs (one) Robin clown seems the same as before, but some of the characteristics of the eggs may be unique. Unlike the two other species, the breeding season Robin Clown including austral winter (June) and summer (December). Body color mostly young birds appears to be more common with Grey-headed Robin than the Black-capped Robin in terms of lack of a clear eye lines and dark cheeks.
