Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montanes. It is found in the canopy and borders of humid forest and tall secondary woodland.
Only one nest observation known. Instead of a hanging nest it was in a cavity, which is unique amongst its congeners.
Forages in canopy, often in mixed-species flocks. Hunts for insects by gleaning and sallying. Also observed to 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). Despite the fact that the population trend appears to be decreasing, the decline is not believed to be sufficiently rapid to 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.
