Its natural habitat was surely the lower secondary growth and the edges of large rivers;  however, now this species of Wren has adapted to live near human structures;  many build their nests in roof eaves, and other buildings.

Very active, constantly searching for insects such as spiders, moths, crickets and small grass hoppers.

Adults always sleep alone;  during birthing period the female will sleep with the young.
