Forest and edge in hilly regions but less commonly found to sea level or higher in the mountains. May enter open areas in search of flowering trees.
Seen in flocks at some times of the year but in pairs or singly at others (breeding season?). Presumably feeds from flowers of species similar to those sought by Yellow-cheeked Lorikeet.
