If you decide to go birdwatching, be mindful that finding these non-social birds is back-breaking. They are primarily found in areas associated with water, like forest swamps, riverbanks, and streams. However, some individuals could also enjoy themselves on the forest floor away from the water. They dip their beaks into the water (keeping their head out) to catch prey from muddy waters.
The foraging behavior and mating calls are limited to daytime, with nights devoted to sleep and rest. The rainy season favors breeding (limited data on breeding behavior), and males usually build the nest while both parents care for the chick.
