Comparatively little is known of the general biology of this bird. It is restricted in range to the central plateau of South Western Africa, from about Wind hoek northwards to Southern Angola. In the east it extends as far as the borders of the Kalahari and in the west to the escarpment base but not into the Namib desert.
