Montane white eye birds are found in habitats with trees and shrubs up to altitudes of 3,400 m. They are social birds that live in small flocks and roost together in roosting trees. Their thick white eye ring makes them easy to spot. Primarily, they feed on insects, spiders and small soft fruits. 2–4 eggs are laid with brooding lasting 10–16 days.
