They live in semi-open habitats in South America, mainly in central and eastern areas of the continent.
They mainly eat seeds and insects.
They usually occur in pairs and are secretive, tending to remain inside the heavy cover of vegetation.
The males have a loud and musical song starting slowly and ending in a loud warble, which they use to attract and impress a female. The pair build a cup-shaped nest and lay 3-4 eggs.
Land clearance for agriculture is the biggest threats to these birds.
They occur in some protected areas throughout their range.
