Reproductive successes of Cinnamon Bittern were studied at Paleik In, from June 2016 to September 2016. A total of 20 nests and 90 eggs were observed. Among these, 55 eggs survived until hatching. The mean length, width and weight of eggs were 31.26±1.21 mm, 24.03±0.99 mm and 19.53±3.30 respectively. The clutch size was 2-6 eggs. The incubation period was 22 - 23 days and both parents incubated the eggs. During the study period, 70 % of the nests were recorded as successful, 5 % was lost due to predator, 10 % was lost by flooding, 5 % was abandoned and 10 % was lost by unknown reasons.
