The species has a distinctive yellowish supercilium and rufous crown. The throat is yellowish with brown streaks. They forage in small flocks and creep and clamber in low vegetation. They breed in the pre-monsoon season from February to July and build a loose ball shaped nest made from grasses and leaves.
