The mantle, back, wings and tail are olive-green, with one yellow wing bar formed by the tips of the greater coverts, and sometimes a second wing bar. The head pattern is distinctive: a yellow central crown stripe, broad black stripes on each side of the crown, a long bright yellow supercilium, and a dark eye line. Its throat, sides of its head, upper breast and undertail-coverts are all bright yellow, contrasting with the white lower breast and belly. The irises are hazel to dark brown, the legs and feet are pale yellow to fleshy-yellow. It has a bicoloured bill with a brown upper mandible and yellow lower mandible. The male and the female look alike. It feeds on insects and flits among the foliage to catch crawling and flying insects. It breeds in the hills of eastern India in April-June.
