Chunky little bird of middle levels and understory in humid tropical forest of lowlands. Away from display areas, usually found in ones and twos perched quietly or feeding at fruiting trees and bushes from understory to canopy. Often sits still for long periods and easily overlooked. Male unmistakable: flame-red head glows in shady forest. Female notably drab, dull greenish with dull pinkish bill, dark legs, best identified by shape and behavior.
