And we, normal people, also fall in love with them.

Thanks to the wide range, the population of these birds is very stable. They are now considered at least risk on the IUCN Red List.

This species prefers living in scrub or open woodland where they dine mainly on insects and other small prey.

When the breeding season begins, the female builds her nest in thorny thickets that are a meter or two above the ground. This nest is made from twigs and rootlets and very flimsy. She then lays 4 eggs in her nest, incubates them, and continues to feed the hatchlings until fully-fledged. Noticeably, both males and females join the parenting.
