It is an endemic resident breeder in Sri Lanka, where it lives in subtropical and tropical moist forests, wetlands, plantations, and rural gardens up to an elevation of 2,000 meters (6,600 ft).

In length, it measures 21–22 cm (8.3–8.7 in), and its weight is 57–60 g (2.0–2.1 oz). It subsists on berries, fruits, and, on rare occasions, insects. It builds a nest in a tree hole, where it lays two to three eggs.
