Singles and pairs frequent montane forest, forest edge, and gardens. Eastern Miombo Sunbird is larger than Forest Double-collared, with a gray-brown (not olive) belly and bluish (not violet-purple) rump, and preferring broadleaved woodland to montane forest; Montane Double-collared is larger with a longer bill. Has a typical jumbled sunbird song.
