These birds are native to tropical lowlands and sometimes wetlands on the island of Sulawesi, Indonesia.
They eat fruit, insects and grain.
Grosbeak starlings are highly vocal, at their colonies and in feeding flocks.
This species nests in colonies, which frequently contain hundreds of pairs. Its nests are formed in rotting or dying tree trunks.
They currently have a stable population but do face the threats of habitat loss and encroachment by humans.
