Biology

The Visayan broadbill searches for food at the lower levels of the forest, where it feeds primarily on small insects. It forages singly or in groups of up to five individuals, sometimes in flocks with other bird species. It is thought to breed from February to June and its nest is likely to be similar to that of the very closely related Mindanao broadbill; a large and elaborate nest, shaped like a hanging purse (2) (3).
