South America : East, Central, Southeast
Inhabits dry savanna and grassland, subtropical or tropical seasonally wet or flooded lowland grassland, semi arid shrub. Typically in more open land with abundance of termites..
Nest excavated by both sexes is a hole in dead or living tree or f.e. telephone pole. Mostly up to 12 meter. Will ocassionally breed in colonies of 5/6 pairs over a 100 meter distance. clutch size is 4-5 eggs incubated by both parents. No further data.
Predominantly feeds on ants and termites, in breeding time also anthropods. Will excavate termite nests, arboreal and in ground. Mostly seen in loose groups.
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 increasing, 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.
Sedentary throughout range.
