Handsome, but typically skulking and rarely seen bird of tropical lowlands and lower foothills. Found in shady understory of dense brushy woodland, deciduous forest, and coffee plantations. Usually seen as singles or pairs, on or near the ground where uses its long bill to toss leaves. Pairs call back and forth with varied rich whistles and clucks. The male can look dark overall, with a whitish eyebrow, but when he faces you the rose-pink bib is stunning. Female has a rusty-orange bib.
