Young males are much duller and greener than the adults, with weaker barring.
The population in western Panama and Costa Rica has most birds more yellowish-greenish especially on upperside. The rest may differ by subspecies in how strong the barring is on the underside.
There are 3 subspecies:
Canopy and middle levels of mountain forests.
The diet consists of large insects, spiders and berries. They feed singly, in pairs and, after breeding, in small family groups.
The female builds a spherical nest from plant material, with a low entrance and incubates the 2 dark brown-blotched brownish white eggs for 18-20 days. The male helps to feed the young.
