This species is uncommon. It inhabits tall tree evergreen forests of India (mainly in Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Nagaland, and Manipur), China, and Myanmar at 300m-2,010m altitude. It congregates in a small flock and mostly forages on boring beetles and woodlice. Its breeding season occurs during May-June (BirdLife International 2018). 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 logging and shifting cultivation (BirdLife International 2018).

Biodiversity Atlas - India is a species-based bioinformatics platform that is voluntarily supported by numerous organisations such as the National Centre for Biological Sciences,
Indian Foundation for Butterflies, Diversity India, and Titli Trust. The platform is designed for aggregating, displaying and analysing biodiversity data from tropical developing countries and other biodiversity hotspots such as India. It is a distributed platform of stand-alone, taxon-specific, natural history websites that give ownership and recognition to contributing naturalists. It is used extensively for research as well as educational and outreach activities by professional and citizen scientists. The 'BioAtlasIndia' website family currently has the following members:
