Little is known about the natural ecology of this rare bird. The clutch size is normally one and breeding can occur year round, although there appears to be a peak in activity between November and April (4). Insects such as dragonflies and mosquitoes make up the majority of the diet, and males tend to forage in the lower levels of the forest whereas females search for food in the higher, lighter levels (4).
