They are to be found in both dry and humid forests with plenty of undergrowth; gallery woodland and the edges of mangrove swamps.
Their main diet consists of fruit and insects, both of which are collected in flight sallies
The female builds the nest, incubates eggs, and raises the young on her own. The nest is a shallow cup made of fibres, mosses, grasses, and dry leaves. The clutch consists of 1-2 buffy eggs with heavy brown spotting.
Two males duet with a "Toledo" call which helps the pair attract females. This call gives rise to their local name.
