Rainforests and nearby wet forests and woodlands, especially along moist sheltered gullies.
Their diet consists of a variety of fruits and berries, which they noisily feed on while hanging upside down.
Both sexes build a flimsy stick nest in the crown of a tree, usually among bushy branches or vines, from 2 m to 12 m from the ground. The clutch consists of a single egg which is incubated by both sexes for 24 days. Both adults feed the young, using regurgitated 'pigeon milk' from their crops in the earliest stages.
