Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical swamps and heavily degraded former forest. This bird inhabits periodically flooded forests and varzeas, in the tangled vegetation along water courses.


Nest is a small open cup built 3 meter above ground. Clutch size is two eggs, no further data. Males form leks and have complex display behavior.

Feeding habits

Forages for fruit and insects, the latter caught by gleaning and sallying.


This species has a very 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.
