The sexes are different. Their habitat range from dry landscapes to mountainous rainforests. Their food is invertebrates and seeds. They lead a terrestrial and largely cryptic life. The voice is high-pitched and carry long distances. When they rise, their wings make a sound like those of flying quails. The nests are usually cup-shaped, the clutch size is regularly two.
