Status, Habitat and Habits:

This rare species is endemic to India (mainly in Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala). It inhabits rocky hillsides rich with fruiting plants, at the heights of 300m-1,800m asl. It mostly forages on fruits and insects. It breeds during June-August (BirdLife International 2016).

Conservation Status:  



According to the IUCN Red List assessment, the population of this species is declining, with the current population estimate of 2,500-9,999 individuals. The threat to its persistence comes from habitat disturbance due to granite quarrying, chopping trees for fuelwood, and domestic livestock on fruits (BirdLife International 2001).
