shy, but locally common and bolder. It associates in flocks up to six or seven, but pairs
or solitary individuals are sometimes met with. A very energetic, agile bird, most of its
time is spent in searching for food among foliage at all levels from the ground to the
tops of tall trees. It capture the critters like hairy caterpillars, green tree-crickets,
various chafer beetles, tree-frogs and lizards.
The breeding season is
in the first quarter of the year, so far
as is known, but the nest has seldom been found. The nest resembled a small crow's nest.
It is very well concealded among small twigs and foliage near the top of the tree. The
eggs number three to five and are whitish, profusely spotted and speckled with various
shades of brown. They measure about 30.5 × 22.1 mm.
