This bird is native to the Indian subcontinent’s northern regions and portions of Southeast Asia.

The Golden bush robin is a relatively versatile bird that prefers open regions with bamboo and/or tiny bushes.

It also prefers secondary growth and undergrowth woods dominated by coniferous trees all the way to the tree line.

It is found between 3000–4600 m in the summer and 600 m in the winter.

These birds forage for insects on the ground or in the lowest portions of shrubs.

They will also perform brief aerial sallies after catching a flying victim.

From May through June, the Golden Bush Robin breeds.

Within, the female lays a clutch of 3–4 eggs. The nesting phase lasts 14 to 15 days.
