It is found in Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guyana, Panama, Peru, Suriname, and Venezuela
Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical swamps. Found in most of Amazonia and the coastal forests from Pernambuco to Rio de Janeiro, this bird lives alone or among mixed-species flocks in forests and capoeiras.
Builds a pear shaped nest with a entrance at the bottom. Often neighboring wasp nests. Clutch 2-3 eggs. No further data. It uses the nest for sleeping even outside the mating season.
Forages for anthropods by perch gleaning. Picks prey with short sallies from underside of leafs and branches. Often seen in at the edge of understorey and commonly in mixed-species flocks. When hunting, it perches for a few moments, examines the surroundings, then swiftly flies away to catch insects in the foliage, quickly reassuming its perch.
This species has a large range, with an estimated global extent of occurrence of 5,700,000 km
