Pipits make their nests in clumps of grass, tussock, bracken or scrub. They may lay two or three clutches through the spring and summer, with two to five eggs in each. When the adults come to feed the chicks, they land some distance from the nest then approach on foot – possibly to avoid giving away the location to potential predators.
