Based on 805 observations of 63 species, we identified the main breeding seasons of avian trophic guilds in New Caledonia. Most omnivorous and carnivorous birds had undefined breeding periods with moderate peaks during the warm/dry season and the hot/rainy season. In contrast, nectarivorous, frugivorous, granivorous and insectivorous species had marked breeding seasons that started at the beginning of the warm/dry season and ended in the hot/rainy season. Introduced species also reproduced during these periods, regardless of the trophic guild to which they belonged.
