These birds are very colourful, however are wary and hard to see. Remarkably little is known about them. They occur in dense tangled bush, often in thorny creepers. They forage low down in undergrowth and on the ground, turning over leaves like a thrush. Gorgeous Bush-Shrikes fly with short rapid wing beats but seldom fly long distances. Their food consists of insects.
