Red-legged Honeycreeper is very common in Central and northern South America from Mexico south to Brazil.


It lives in wet evergreen forest and edges, citrus and cocoa plantations, semi-open areas with scattered trees, open woodlands and clearings. It is very active and restless, and often found in small groups. It feeds on insects and some fruit and nectar.
