This tanager favors humid evergreen forest edge (14), dense shrubbery, secondary growth, and low trees at the forest edge or in clearings. The species frequents abandoned plantations and tree-studded pastures near watercourses (6). In the northern portion of its range, the bird has been seen in semi-open country and even in towns and villages, visiting orchards and fruit trees, although it is not stated whether this is simply for shelter or a food source to the birds (33). Generally remains within 6 m of the ground (1).
