This is a monotypic species[1].


Acacia savanna or espinilho, grassland and agricultural land where there are small scattered trees.



The name derives from the large stick nests which are built conspicuously on small trees or on man-made structures such as telephone poles. They can be about a metre high and are roughly cylindrical in shape. The entrance is close to the top.
