In spring appears in March in southern areas, or in April – early May in northern ones and in mountains. Migrates in small flocks of 10-20 birds; flight is very rapid, at Chokpak Pass latest birds registered 13 May 1969. Breeds in separate pairs not far one from another. Nest is located not far than 200-300 m from the water in the shallow hole and is lined with some dry grass or small pebbles. Clutch of 3-4 eggs is produced in April or in early May, but nests with eggs were found until the end of June. Incubation lasts 22-26 days. Chicks hatch from May until the end of July.
