The female is very similar to the male, however, her upperparts are olive green and a yellow breast.
The color of the female makes her distinguishable from the female Gυira Taпager.
These birds are found epidemically in the southeast of Brazil.
These birds prefer to live in moist lowland forests, as well as on platforms and secondary growth. They can be found from sea level to 1500 m.
As an omnivorous bird, the Rυfoυs-headed tapager can be found feeding on small insects and native fruits primarily in the canopy and upper levels of the forest.
During the mating season, the male displays the brightly colored parts of his plumage. While a female was looking to carry pest material to a small hole in October, a hungry group of Tilladsia was found. Other than that, there is little information on the breeding habits of this species.
In the only habitat, this bird is considered at risk.
