A small rare and endemic flycatcher with a conspicuous white patch in front of the eyes and a short white eyebrow. Also note its gray crown and a brownish-gray back and cinnamon washed breast and sides. Inhabits rocky grasslands with scattered shrubs. The song is an accelerated trill “pilrup-pilrup-pilrup” and the call is a series of squeaky “eek-uk” notes.
