It is a breeding bird of the West and central Palaearctic, south of the boreal zone as well as in the Mediterranean and steppe zone. It is living in clear and sunny deciduous forests and alluvial forests. The main food source consists of insects and their larvae as well as fruit and berries. The displayed preparation comes from the collection of Ernst Gloyer.
