This gaudy species nests in riparian forests and open areas with scattered trees. Its long hanging nest is placed far out on the end of a high branch and woven from plant fibers, grass and hair. It feeds mainly on insects and spiders but in the late summer switches to fruits. The four-digit banding code is BUOR.
