Cultivated areas, including rice fields and neglected overgrown fields. Grassland at inland forest edges, and mangrove forest edges.
They forage on the grounds for grass, herb and rice seeds.
They construct a nest from dried grass, leaves and stems, which is placed in trees or bushes. Their clutch contains 5-9 white eggs, which may be incubated by the female alone, or both adults sharing the duties. Incubation takes 13 days. The young are fed with regurgitated seeds. They fledge after 18-20 days. The young hang around the nest site with the parents for some time.
Call: a soft prruitor tit; in alarm a louder call.
