Having a very widespread distribution, cinnamon-breasted buntings are found across most of mainland sub-Saharan Africa but avoiding deserts, equatorial forest, and the high altitudes of mountains. They can be found in rocky, lightly wooded hillsides with sparse vegetation and bare soil but can sometimes be found in woodlands. Locally common in rocky places and on stony ground. In Kenya from Lake Turkana basin south through the Rift Valley and adjacent highlands to most north Tanzania parks and reserves.
They are monogamous but solitary nesters. The nest is built from twigs and grass and typically placed on the ground in a shaded area. Incubation and care for young is performed by both males and females. Cinnamon-breasted buntings are ground gleaners that primarily eat seeds but have also been known to eat insects. They will also sometimes jump to pull seeds. They are commonly spotted alone or in pairs but also flock in groups of 3-4, and even 6-8 but less frequently so. Fear responses include freezing and observing when the perceived threat level is low, fleeing, and making alarm calls. Higher intensity behavior includes mobbing.
