Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical swamps, subtropical or tropical moist montane forests, and plantations.

It was formally considered a subspecies of the grey-headed quail-dove, and some taxonomists still consider the relationship unchanged.
