It is found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela.
Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests. It is found on or near the ground of humid forest, mainly terra firme
Little known, only one nest found, which was a small cup in a hollow stub. Clutch size is 2 eggs.
It walks slowly along the ground in search of insects, often following army ants. Although frequently heard, it is not often observed.
This species has a large range, with an estimated global extent of occurrence of 7,000,000 kmÂ². The global population size has not been quantified, but it is believed to be large as the species is described as ‘common’ in at least parts of its range (Stotz et al. 1996). Global population trends have not been quantified, but the species is not believed to approach the thresholds for the population decline criterion of the IUCN Red List (i.e., declining more than 30% in ten years or three generations). For these reasons, the species is evaluated as Least Concern.
Sedentary throughout range.
