Behavior

Introduction

Very little information. Forages on or very near the ground in dense understory, as do other species of Grallaria. When foraging, advances with hops, then stops and cocks the head to one side, and picks insects from the ground (Krabbe and Schulenberg 2003). Almost always concealed in dense vegetation, where often difficult to observe (Ridgely and Tudor 1994, Schulenberg et al. 2007).
