Behavior

It forages on the edge of forests, usually with other species of birds. It moves slowly among the foliage and captures its food with heavy and fast jumps; often hangs upside down looking for insects. Small prey are swallowed a mouthful, and large prey are footsteps by the leg while are rip with the bill and eats slowly.

Social and interspecific behavior

In pairs or alone. It is a very vocal species, and sings almost all year. However it is very difficult to observe because it moves little and is hidden in the foliage.
