This rare species is found in India and Myanmar. It inhabits moist evergreen forests and shrublands on the hilly areas of Arunachal Pradesh (between 300m-900m asl). It breeds during April-July in the ravines and for wintering, it congregates and moves to the shrubs on the hillside (BirdLife International 2017).
According to the IUCN Red List Assessment, the population of this species is declining, with the current population estimate of 2,500-9,999 individuals. The major threat to this species is unknown, a possible threat to its persistence could be habitat disturbance due to logging and agriculture (BirdLife International 2017).
