Habits In Burma this Flower-pecker occurs from the foothills up to about 5,000 feet; it is common in parts of the Karen Hills at 3,000 feet and perhaps higher but, unlike the Indian race, it extends also over the greater part of the plains of Burma-There is nothing in its habits to distinguish it from the better known Indian form.
