Little has been published on the foraging behavior of Rufous-faced Antpittas, and the information available is limited to only a few cursory accounts. These agree that, like other Grallaria antpittas, Rufous-faced Antpittas spend a good deal of time foraging on the ground, often running or hopping for short distances, and frequently venture out into open areas at the edges of more dense habitat (Remsen et al. 1982, Ridgely and Tudor 1994).
There are no published data on territorial defense, maintenance, or fidelity.
Not described; probably monogamous.
Social and interspecific behavior
No published information; presumably Rufous-faced Antpitta primarily is solitary, like other species of Grallaria.
