They inhabit forest and secondary growth as well as clearings and tend to be found between 500 and 1,000 metres asl.

were in a small flock of about 12 accompanied by 4 Blue Dacnis Dacnis
cayana. They were quite high up the trail to the Pico das
Almas, foraging in a small area of gallery woodland at about
1,500 metres asl.
They are golden-yellow above with heavy black streaks on the back and lighter black streaks on the crown. Underparts are mostly turquoise moving to green on the lower belly and yellow on the lower flanks. The forehead and throat are black.
