Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical swamps. Prefers the canopy while perching and hunting.


Builds a football-shaped nest with a side entrance.

Feeding habits

Feeds alone or in small noisy groups high up in canopy. Feeds on fruit and likely to be found in trees with mistletoes.


This species has an extremely large range, and hence does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the range size criterion (Extent of Occurrence <20,000 km2 combined with a declining or fluctuating range size, habitat extent/quality, or population size and a small number of locations or severe fragmentation). The population trend appears to be stable, and hence the species does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations). The population size has not been quantified, but it is not believed to approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population size criterion (<10,000 mature individuals with a continuing decline estimated to be >10% in ten years or three generations, or with a specified population structure). For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern.
