Very little information. Probably primarily insectivorous, but the diet also includes berries and probably other fruit (Beebe 1916, Haverschmidt 1968). Insects identified in the diet include caterpillars (Lepidoptera), Hemiptera Homoptera, and orthopterans (Beebe 1916, Haverschmidt 1968). Tostain et al. (1992) observed adults provisioning juveniles with "large insects", including orthopterans. Another specimen (n = 1) had unidentified insect remains in the stomach (Willard et al. 1991).
