Strikingly-patterned tit with black-and-yellow face pattern and white-spotted wings. Black lores and overall thicker eye-stripe distinguish this species from Yellow-cheeked Tit, with which it overlaps at the far eastern end of its range. Very similar to Indian Yellow Tit, but no range overlap. Active inhabitant of foothill and montane forests, often in small flocks in the middle and upper levels of forest; joins mixed-species foraging flocks in non-breeding season. Song is a series of high thin whistles and long buzzy notes. Calls are typically high-pitched jumbled notes; also gives rasping scolds.
