The golden-crowned tanager, an omnivorous bird, feeds on seeds, fruits, nectar, flower parts, and insects.

The breeding season is from March to June in temperate zones, and males display their brightest feathers to potential mates and potential male rivals. The female builds a nest in an area with dense vegetation where she lays a clutch of up to five eggs. She alone incubates the eggs and the male steps in to help feed the young once they have hatched.

Although this bird is rare in its range, due to its size it is considered of Least Concern on the IUCN Red List.
