They are very adaptable and found in varied habitats, from open forest edges and mangroves to plantation and cultivated gardens. They are home in parts of SE Asia. They forage in small groups in search of fruits. Figs are their favorite, and they may get acrobatic, exploring the narrow branches for food.
They are social and roost communally but are not very talkative. Their nests are flimsy and have two eggs yet to be thoroughly studied by the researchers.
