The butterfly, being protected by its inedibility, has a leisurely flight. It is often seen flying about shrubs and bushes in search of its host plants. It visits a large variety of flowering plant species. On hot days large numbers of these butterflies can be seen mudpuddling on wet sand. This butterfly also gathers on damaged parts of plants such as Crotalaria, Heliotropium to forage for chemicals precursors to produce pheromones.

Along with other Danaids such as the Tigers, the Common Crow is one of the most common migrating butterfly species.Males and females in equal proportions have been seen to migrate.
