Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and heavily degraded former forest. In Surinam it is a common bird living in the tops of dead and tall trees in forest clearings on sandy ground.


It nests in old woodpecker holes, natural tree cavities or holes within which it makes a cup-shaped nest out of grass. Clutch size usually 2 eggs, no further details.

Feeding habits

Forages in pairs or small groups, hunting by perching high up in canopy and sallying or hawking for prey. Will also eat fruit.


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.
White-ringed Flycatcher status Least Concern
