This species is widely distributed and endemic to Sundaland region, mainly found in Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand. It is often seen in the thick cover area where it moves in small groups to feed while uttering a harsh rasping note whistle of ‘kwo-kwee-kwo-kwee’ to maintain contacts. This bird rarely in long flights, but prefers to hop from branch to branch and glide from one foliage to another (Strange & Jeyarajasingam, 1993; Jeyarajasingam & Pearson, 2012).
