There are 2 subspecies[1]:

  • T. c. nana:
  • Rainforests of northern Queensland (Cooktown to Mount Spec)
  • T. c. capito:


Eucalypt forests, subtropical and tropical rainforests with dense vegetation, such as vine thickets.


Diet is mainly insects, some seeds.

Nest is cup shaped and made from grass, spiders' webs, moss, lichen, leaves and bark. Females incubate the eggs while the male provides food. Both parents feed the young.

It is threatened by habitat clearing for agriculture and housing.
