Temperament:  Paradise tanagers are excitable and noisy, and notably gregarious. They are almost always encountered in single-species flocks of 3–15 individuals, sometimes more, or in groups that associate with canopy mixed-species flocks. Moving in and out of slower-moving mixed-species flocks, Paradise tanagers sometimes remain for only a few minutes before flying off. They mainly forage very high up, average is 25–50 m above ground, only infrequently dropping low along forested edges to reach fruiting shrubs. Groups of Paradise tanagers are restless and active with individuals searching rapidly on high open branches by hopping outwards and leaning downwards, first along one side of a branch and then the other, to check sides and undersurfaces. 

Sexing: Unable to determine gender without DNA testing. 

Diet:  Pears, papayas, bananas and small softbilled pellets, meal worms
