Its natural habitat is tropical moist lowland forests and tropical moist shrubland. The species is tolerant of habitat degradation and has been observed living in coconut plantations. It isprobably threatened by habitat loss, as much of the remaining forest in its range is threatened with logging, but more research is needed.

The Dusky Friarbird is classified as Vulnerable (VU), considered to be facing a high risk of extinction in the wild.

The Dusky Friarbird (Philemon fuscicapillus) is a species of friarbird in the honeyeater family Meliphagidae. It is a drag brown bird with pale undersides. The area around the eye is bare and pink. It is around 30 cm long. The species is mimicked by the Dusky-brown Oriole, which is almost identical in appearance, a situation that has arisen in many species of orioles and friarbirds that exist in the same habitat (Diamond 1982).
